The Lyon-class battleships were a pair of battleships in the Marine Nationale from the mid 1920s onwards. They were designed in the early 1920s as a counter to the Francesco Caracciolo-class battleships of the Regia Marina.

The two ships were named Lyon and Lille and were constructed at the AC de la Loire St. Nazaire and FC de la Méditerranée, La Seyne shipyards respectively in September 1922.
