Adriaan Walraven Engelen (Valburg, 23 August 1804 - Velp, 29 January 1890) was a poet and a regional judge, who spent four years as a representative in the Lower House of the States General.

Adriaan Walraven Engelen was the son of the councillor at the imperial court (1812) and president of the Supreme Court of the Netherlands Hendrik Engelen and his wife Gerarda Johanna Dibbets. He was educated at the Royal Institute Van Kinsbergen in Elburg and studied law and contemporary law (1820-1826) and literature (1829) at the Hogeschool in Groningen. From 1830 to 1832 he volunteered for military service with the Groningse Vrijwillige Jagers, and he also participated in the Ten Days' Campaign. From 1849 to 1853 Engelen was a member of the Dutch House of Representatives, where he regularly spoke as a pragmatic liberal. He discussed subjects such as justice, education, financial affairs and colonies. In later years he ran for election, but was not re-elected.
