Averardo de' Medici III (1320-1363), also known as Everard De Medici, was the son of Salvestro de' Medici (died 1346), "il Chiarissimo" (English meaning "the very clear.") and the father of three children: Giovanni, Francesco, and Antonia. Giovanni di Bicci de' Medici would later become the first historically significant member of the Medici family of Florence and the founder of the Medici Bank.

He was named after the legendary knight Averardo, from whom the Medici claimed descent. He was second cousin of Salvestro de' Medici.
