Jean (II) Juvénal des Ursins (1388–1473), the son of the royal jurist and provost of the merchants of Paris Jean Juvénal, was a French cleric and historian. He is attributed to be the author of the Histoire de Charles VI Roy de France, among other legal treatises and clerical publications, and is one of the main sources for information on the Battle of Agincourt.

He was the Bishop of Beauvais from 1433 to 1444, Bishop of Laon, and Archbishop of Reims.
