Martín de Córdoba y Velasco (died 1604), was marqués de Cortes and governor of Oran.
He was the third son of Martín Alonso Fernández de Córdoba Montemayor y Velasco, conde de Alcaudete and Maria Leonor Pacheco.
He participated in the disastrous Expedition of Mostaganem (1558), where his father was killed. Martín de Córdoba was captured and imprisoned as a Christian slave in Algiers under the beylerbey Hasan Pasha, until he was exchanged for the huge ransom of 23,000 escudos.
He married Jerónima de Navarra y Enríquez de la Carra Marquesa de Cortes and died in 1604.
