Martial d'Auvergne (Martial of Auvergne, Martial of Paris, 1420–1508) was a French poet. Originally from Auvergne, he served as notary at Châtelet, and later as attorney (procureur) for the Paris parlement.

His most important work are the Vigilles de Charles VII à neuf psaumes et neuf leçons (1493, edited 1724), a versified chronicle of the Hundred Years' War.

His other works include Les Louenges de la benoiste Vierge Marie (1492), a devotional poem dedicated to Mary and the satirical Les Arrêts d’amour (undated, in prose) and L’Amant rendu cordelier à l’Observance d’amour (1490, in verse).
