Guillaume de Chartres (Guillielmus de Carnoto, Willemus de Carnoto), (c. 1178 – 1219) was a grand master of the Knights Templar from 1210 – 26 August 1218.
He was the son of Nilon III, the Count of Bar-sur-Seine.
In 1210, Guillaume de Chartres assisted at the coronation of Jean de Brienne as King of Jerusalem. In 1211, he arbitrated between Leo I of Armenia and the Templars, regarding the castle of Bagras. During his rule, the order flourished in Spain, achieving important victories against the Moors. He had contact with the Mongols under Genghis Khan and was accused of treason as a result.
