Radbot, Count of Habsburg (c. 985 – 1045), also known as Radbot of Klettgau, was Graf of the county of Klettgau on the High Rhine in Swabia.

One of the progenitors of the Habsburg dynasty, Radbot was probably the second son of Lanzelin of Klettgau (son of Guntram, Count in Breisgau) and the younger brother of Bishop Werner I of Strasbourg. In 1010, he married Ida (970–1026), daughter of Duke Frederick I of Upper Lorraine. Their son was named Werner I, Count of Habsburg.

Radbot built Habsburg Castle, and in 1027 established Muri Abbey built up by Benedictine monks descending from Einsiedeln Abbey.
