Richard Armstedt (10 November 1851 – 14 April 1931) was a German philologist, educator, and historian.

Armstedt, a native of Osterburg, Prussian Saxony, received his doctorate in philosophy from the University of Tübingen in 1885. The following year he became senior instructor at Altstadt Gymnasium in Königsberg. From 1900-21 he was director of Königsberg's Kneiphof Gymnasium. He died in the same city.

Armstedt's scholarly work was focused on East Prussian history, especially that of Königsberg. He also wrote a history of the Königsberg Freemason lodge Zum Totenkopf und Phönix, of which he was a member.[citation needed]
