Henry Franklin-Bouillon (3 September 1870 - 12 September 1937) was a French politician.

Franklin-Bouillon was born in Jersey. He was a member of the right wing of the Radical-Socialist Party who was hostile to communism and socialism, and favourable to the right-wing National Bloc and its successors. He met Mustafa Kemal Atatürk in Ankara in 1921 and they became close friends. In 1922 he travelled through the devastated areas by the retreating Greek army and after visiting the burned town of Manisa, he declared that out of 11,000 houses in the city of Magnesia (Manisa) only 1,000 remained.[1]

Franklin-Bouillon died, aged 67, in Paris.
