Llanvihangel Ystern Llewern (Welsh: Llanfihangel-Ystum-Llywern) is a village in Monmouthshire, Wales. It is located between Abergavenny and Monmouth and north of Raglan. The River Trothy passes close by.

Joseph Bradney (1859-1933), the historian, acquired, partly by inheritance and partly purchase, an estate at Tal-y-coed Court, where he settled at an early age. A Latin tablet in St. Michael's Church in the village records his achievements. Bradney was also the owner of a late-medieval house in the village, named The Pant, with an attached Quaker Meeting House. Bradney was the author of A History of Monmouthshire published in four volumes between 1904 and 1933.

The village has a parish church dedicated to St. Michael, hence the word "Llanvihangel" in its name.
