Count Heinrich Karl Clam-Martinic (1 January 1863, Vienna – 7 March 1932, Klam) was an Austrian statesman. One of the last Prime Ministers in the Austrian half of the Austro-Hungarian empire, he was called during World War I to head a new cabinet by Emperor Charles on December 13, 1916, soon after the death of Emperor Franz Joseph on November 21, 1916.[1] As Prime Minister, he replaced Ernest von Koerber, but his government only lasted until May 30 1917. He was succeeded by Ernst Seidler von Feuchtenegg (1917-1918), Baron Max Hussarek von Heinlein (1918), and Heinrich Lammasch (1918).

His short-lived cabinet included famous Austrian figures such as Karl Urban and Joseph Baernreither.

On July 10 1917, Clam became until the end of the war, Military Governor of occupied Montenegro, as successor of Viktor Weber Edler von Webenau. On February 21 1918, the Emperor named him Knight in the Order of the Golden Fleece.

He was a member of the Clam-Martinic family.
