Humblus (Humbli, Humble) was one of the earliest kings of Denmark according to Saxo Grammaticus's "Gesta Danorum".

The standing on stones in connection with the choosing a king is a motive known from other Scandinavian sources. It occurs both in "Chronicon Lethrense" and Olaus Magnus's Swedish history.

Humblus may be of the same origin as King Humli of Hervarar saga.
