Henry Grace à Dieu ("Henry, Thanks be to God"), also known as Great Harry, was an English carrack or "great ship" of the King's Fleet in the 16th century.

Contemporary with the Mary Rose, Henry Grace à Dieu was even larger being Henry VIII's flagship. She had a large forecastle four decks high, and a stern castle two decks high. She was 50 m long, weighing 1,500 tons and having a complement of 700 - 1,000 men. It is thought that she was ordered by Henry VIII in response to construction of the Scottish ship Michael, launched in 1511.
