The Prince-Bishopric of Ro'ekha (Khadenz: Lamir-Airazkaur ti'Rohakha) was a Prince-Bishopric on the island of Cadenza that existed as a sovereign state for over a thousand years, from the early 6th to mid-16th centuries. Its territories included part of the city of Ro'ekha and much of its hinterland, and it was one of the most powerful lordships on the island until its eventual unification as an ecclesiastical polity of the Cadenzan Republic.

The Prince-Bishop included in his patrimony the Great Monastery of Ro'ekha, and in the early 11th century Bishop Qirnos was a driving force behind the establishment of the Knights of Saint Misrav. This knightly monastic order was conceived of for the protection of the Siresian Order from rival temporal lords in the north of Cadenza, though in reality it served as the bishop's private army until its focus shifted to crusading in Kur'zhet and Azmir.
