Banate of Lugos and Karánsebes (Hungarian language: Karánsebesi-Lugosi bánság, Romanian language: Banatul de Lugoj-Caransebeș , Serbian language: Лугошки и карансебешки Банат / Lugoški i karansebeški banat) was an administrative unit of the vassal Ottoman Principality of Transylvania in the 16th century. It was located in the south-eastern part of the region of Banat.


The Banate of Lugos and Karánsebes was formed gradually between 1526–1536, after the battle of Mohács, when the Banat of Severin was divided. Its eastern side, from Orsova, came under the jurisdiction of the Wallachian ruler. In the western part, it was formed this new political and military border entity.

In 1658, the new prince of Transylvania, Ákos (Acațiu) Barcsay, ceded the region to the Ottoman Empire.
