Serge Golon (1903–1972), born Vsevolod Sergeevich Golubinov (Russian: Всеволод Серге́евич Голубинов), was a writer, the husband of French author Anne Golon, in collaboration with whom he wrote the Angélique series.

He was a Russian aristocrat, born in Bukhara, Turkestan, where his father was the tsar's consul. He left Russia, fleeing to France, at the outbreak of the October Revolution in 1917.

Goloubinov knew eleven languages.[citation needed] He was a well-known geologist and chemist who prospected for gold for a living in China, Indochina, Laos and finally in the Congo where he met Anne Golon, then a French journalist. Their first book, published in 1957, was Angélique, the Marquise of the Angels.

In 1972 Anne and Serge Golon went to Canada to research their new book. The saga of Angélique was to be continued in the New World. He died there.

Anne and Serge Golon had four children.
