Robert (Hungarian: Róbert; died 1 November 1239) was a prelate in the Kingdom of Hungary in the first decades of the 13th centuries. He was Archbishop of Esztergom between 1226 and 1239 and Bishop of Veszprém from 1209 till 1226. He was sharply opposed to the employment of Jews and Muslims in the administration of the royal revenues. He even put Hungary under interdict to force Andrew II of Hungary to dismiss his non-Christian officials.
