The Free Conservative Party (Freikonservative Partei or FKP) was a Prussian political party of the German Empire, founded in 1866. The party was distinguished from the German Conservative Party by its unqualified support of German nationalism, and was seen as the political party which was closest in views to those of Chancellor Otto von Bismarck. In federal elections, the party was known as the German Reich Party (Deutsche Reichspartei or DRP).

The party was generally supported by more conservative industrialists, and while it opposed political liberalism, it also tended to support free trade and the development of industry. It disbanded in 1918 following the end of the Hohenzollern monarchy, and most of its constituency turned to the new German National People's Party.
