Henriette-Julie de Murat (Brest, 1670 – Château de la Buzardière, 24-09-1716) was an aristocratic French writer of the late 17th century.

She published fairy tales and slightly scandalous faux memoirs, one of which got her exiled to the provincial town of Loches for several years. She was one of the leaders of the fairy-tale vogue, along with Marie Catherine d'Aulnoy, Charlotte-Rose de Caumont La Force, Marie-Jeanne Lhéritier, and Charles Perrault. Among the fairy tales attributed to her are Bearskin and Starlight.
