The Saxonia was the first locomotive built in Germany in 1838. Its name means "Saxony" in Latin.

The steam locomotive was constructed by Johann Andreas Schubert for the Leipzig-Dresden-Railway (LDE), the railway in Saxony and the first long-range railway in Germany. Its major construction was based on the Comet, built in the United Kingdom and first used on the LDE.
