William Lanne (also known as William Laney or "King Billy") (c. 1835 - March 3, 1869) was a Tasmanian Aboriginal, and third husband of Truganini. He is most well-known as the last full-blooded aboriginal tasmanian male. Truganini (also known as Trugernanner or "Lalla Rooke") (circa 1812-May 8, 1876) is generally considered to be the last full blood Tasmanian Aborigine.
