Arkadi Alexandrovich Suvorov (15 (27) August 1784 - 13 April 1811), Count Rymniksky, was a Russian general. A son of Alexander Suvorov, he rose to the rank of lieutenant general.
He fought in the Italian and Swiss expedition (1799–1800). After his father's death Arkadi married Elena Aleksandrovna Naryshkina (1785–1855 ). He fought in the wars with France in 1807, in Austria in 1809 and in Turkey from 1810 to 1811. He commanded 9th Infantry Division, stationed in the Ukraine, from 1807 onwards. He was killed while crossing the Râmnicul Sărat River on 13 April 1811, though the story stating that he was drowned trying to save his coachman originated with his biographer E. Fuks and is not supported by his memoirs and documentary sources. He is buried at the New Jerusalem Monastery. He had two daughters - Mary and Barbara - and two sons - Alexander and Constantine.
