Karl Eibl (23 July 1891 – 21 January 1943) was an Austrian general in the Wehrmacht of Nazi Germany during World War II.
He was a recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords.
He also served in World War 1 as an officer in the Austrian Landwehrregiment 21 .
Eibl was killed north-west of Stalingrad on 21 January 1943, during the chaotic retreat forced by the Russian offensive, Operation Little Saturn, when Italian soldiers mistook his command vehicle for a Soviet armored car and blew it up with hand grenades.
There is a memorial monument dedicated to him in the city park of Krems, Austria
