Madeleine Giteau (1918–2005) was a French historian and member of the Ecole française d'Extrême-Orient, who devoted a great part of her life to research involving Laotian and Cambodian art, especially Khmer sculpture and iconography.

She was the last French curator of Cambodia's National Museum (known as the Albert Sarraut Museum) in Phnom Penh from 1956 to 1966. In 1963, she oversaw the reorganization of the Wat Po Veal and the Battambang Provincial Museum.

She died at the age of 86 in February, 2005.
