Stekšys (or Steksė) (other spellings include Stakys, Stejkint, Stekintas, Stegikintas, Stegutas) was a duke of Lithuania, killed in 1214 near Lielvārde during an attack against Livonia. He is one of the earliest mentioned Lithuanian dukes. He succeeded Daugirutis, duke killed in 1213. After these two deaths, Lithuanian raids to the Livonian lands decreaced in frequency and historians assume a period of decline in the unification process of the Baltic tribes.
