Sir Dafydd ap Llewelyn ap Hywel (c. 1380 – 25 October 1415), better known as Dafydd Gam or Davy Gam, was a Welsh nobleman, a prominent opponent of Owain Glyndŵr. He died at the Battle of Agincourt fighting for King Henry V, King of England in that victory against the French.

The name "Gam" is taken from a Welsh word for "lame/deformed" (from which "gammy", as in "gammy leg", is derived). Regarded as a traitor ("Crooked David") by some in Wales, he is regarded as a hero in England; his reputation has waxed and waned with those of his enemy Owain Glyndŵr and his ally King Henry V.
