Leopold V, Archduke of Further Austria (Graz, October 9, 1586 - September 13, 1632 in Schwaz, Tirol) was the son of Archduke Archduke Charles II of Inner Austria, and the younger brother of Emperor Ferdinand II, father of Ferdinand Charles, Archduke of Further Austria. He was Bishop of Passau and Strasbourg (until 1625) and Archduke of Further Austria including Tirol.

He was invested as bishop in 1598, as a child, even though he had not been ordained as a priest. From 1609 onwards he fought with his mercenaries in the Julian Dispute of Inheritance against Maximilian III, Archduke of Further Austria in Tirol, and 1611 for Rudolf II in Bohemia.

In 1619 upon the death of his kinsman and former rival, he became governor of Maximilian's inheritance: Further Austria and Tirol, where he attained the position of a sovereign, i.e Archduke of Further Austria from 1623 to 1630. He had the Custom House and the Jesuit Church be built in Innsbruck. He fought for the Veltlin and defended Tirol against the Swedes in 1632.
