Jean Liébault (1535 – 21 June 1596) was a doctor and agronomist, born in Dijon.

He married Nicole Estienne, who published several writings about marriage, in which she condemned domestic violence and a large age difference between spouses.[1] His father-in-law was Charles Estienne, author of the Praedieum rusticum.[2] Liébault substantially altered and extended Estienne's book, resulting in a French text La Maison Rustique (translated into English by Charles Stevens and Richard Surflet as "The Countrey Farme" in 1616).[3] He translated or authored the medical textbook Trois Livres appartenans aux infirmitez et maladies des femmes.[4]
