François David (October 14, 1870 - October 1, 1939), an ethnic Assyrian, was the Chaldean Catholic Bishop of Amadiyah in Iraq.

He was consecrated as bishop by Chaldean Patriarch Yousef VI Emmanuel II Thomas on August 15, 1910. He became the principal consecrator of French Archbishop Antonin-Fernand Drapier of the Latin Rite, who was the Apostolic Delegate to French Indochina. The Chaldean lineage therefore includes few members of the Latin Rite episcopate in Vietnam.
