Estienne du Tertre (fl. mid-16th century) was a French composer. He spent most of his life in Paris and worked as an editor for the publisher Attaingnant. Many of his chansons were published.[by whom?]

Du Tertre published suyttes de bransles in 1557, giving us the first use of the term "suite", although the usual form of the time was as pairs of dances.
