Landulf of Milan (Italian: Landolfo di Milano, Latin: Landulfus Mediolanensis) was a late eleventh-century historian of Milan. His work Historiae Mediolanensis contains a proportion of pure invention, as well as gross inaccuracies.[1] He is called Landulf Senior to distinguish him from the unrelated chronicler of Milan Landulf Junior.[2]

He was a married priest[3] and opponent of the Gregorian Reform and the local Patarenes. He travelled to France to study: to Orléans in 1103, to Paris to study with William of Champeaux in 1107-7, and to Laon.[4]
