David Baldwin (22 December 1946 (?) – 4 April 2016) was a British historian, author and former university Lecturer. He lived near Leicester, England.
Baldwin specialises in late Medieval history—"the great medieval families of the Midlands"—and wrote several books about the people and events of the Wars of the Roses. Baldwin previously worked as a lecturer at both the University of Leicester and the University of Nottingham. In 1986, over 25 years before the 2012 excavation and the discovery of the king's body, he predicted that Richard III's remains would be found at Greyfriars, Leicester.
