Robert of Clermont (1256 – 7 February 1317) was created Count of Clermont in 1268. He was the son of King Louis IX of France and Margaret of Provence. In 1272, Robert married Beatrice of Burgundy, heiress of Bourbon and had the following issue:

During his first joust, in 1279, Robert suffered head injuries which rendered him an invalid for the remainder of his life.

Robert is considered the founder of the House of Bourbon, a family which, with the passing of centuries came to govern as Kings of Navarre (1572-1830), Kings of France (1589–1848; due to the extinction of all legitimate agnatic progeny of all his elder brothers), Kings of Spain (1700–present), Kings of the Two Sicilies (1735–1860), Dukes of Parma (1748–1796 and 1847–1859) and grand dukes of Luxembourg (1964–present).

Robert's godfather, chosen by Louis IX, was Humbert of Romans, the Dominican Master of the Order at the time of Robert's birth.

Robert is mentioned in the prologue of the Coutumes de Beauvaisis by Philippe de Beaumanoir.

He was buried in the now-demolished church of the Couvent des Jacobins in Paris.

Robert is a supporting character in Les Rois maudits (The Accursed Kings), a series of French historical novels by Maurice Druon. He was portrayed by Alexandre Rignault in the 1972 French miniseries adaptation of the series, and by Ioan Siminie in the 2005 adaptation.
