Alexander, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg (20 January 1573 – 13 May 1627), was a Danish nobleman.
Alexander was born in Sønderborg (German: Sonderburg) in Schleswig, the third child of Johann II, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Plon and Elisabeth of Brunswick-Grubenhagen. Because his elder surviving brother chose Ærø as his seat, Alexander received Sønderborg upon their father's death and was in practice its second duke. Alexander died in Sønderborg.
Alexander married Dorothea von Schwarzburg-Sondershausen on 26 November 1604 in Oldenburg. They had eleven children:
- Johann Christian, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Franzhagen (26 April 1607 - 28 June 1653)
- Alexander Heinrich, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg (12 September 1608 - 5 September 1657)
