Lajos Aulich (1793, Pozsony (now in Slovakia) – 6 October 1849, Arad (now in Romania)) was the third Minister of War of Hungary.

A professional soldier and lieutenant colonel in the Austrian army, he fought against Habsburg oppression.

At them time of the War of Hungarian Independence (1848–1849) during the Spring Campaign, Aulich commanded an army, who gathered, and prepared for the great Battle of Isaszeg.

He became a honvédség (Hungarian Army) colonel on 2 October 1848, and was named General at the Battle of Kápolna. He was a stickler for the rules: when Lajos Kossuth sent him requests, he answered: "please work through Görgey." He suffered from gout, and relieved of field duty, he was appointed Minister of War on 14 July 1849 and executed less than 3 months later as one of the 13 Martyrs of Arad.
