Fernando de Toledo, (c.1528–1591) was a Spanish nobleman.

He was the illegitimate son and the 1st son of Don Fernando Álvarez de Toledo, 3rd Duke of Alba, "The Iron Duke", with the daughter a flour miller from La Aldehuela, province of Avila, Spain. He was 19 in 1546 when he was recognized as his own son by the really hard 3rd Duke. This was the subject of a theatre comedy written by great literary author, Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio, (1562–1635). The title, when translated into English loses the sound concordances between the words usual in poetry and reads the something like: "Más mal hay en La Aldegüela de lo que suena", approximately, "There are badder things in The Aldehuela than what it appears" .

He was a prior of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, in Castile and Leon. He was Captain General of the cavalry of Flanders and Portugal, member of the Council of State and Viceroy of Catalonia, from 1571 to 1580, replacing Diego Hurtado de Mendoza y de la Cerda, a.k.a, Diego de Mendoza y de la Cerda, 2nd Count of Mélito, 1st Duke of Francavilla, Viceroy from 1564 to 1571.
