Conquering Ruler is a cover album by The Specials, released in 2001 (see 2001 in music).

It is their third album of covers, and their seventh studio album. It is also their latest studio album. Like its predecessor, Skinhead Girl, the tracks were recorded at 1993 sessions in the wake of an album backing Desmond Dekker. Only three members of The Specials - Neville Staple, Roddy Byers, and Horace Panter participated.
