Robert de Visée (c.1650 - 1725) was a lutenist, guitarist, theorbist and viol player at the court of Louis the XIV, as well as a singer, and composer for lute, theorbo and guitar. Robert de Visée's origin is unknown, although a Portuguese origin of his surname had been suggested. He was likely to have studied with Francesco Corbetta. About 1680 he became a chamber musician to Louis XIV, in which capacity he often performed at court. He is also mentioned (in 1709) as a singer in the royal chamber, and in 1719 he was named "Guitar Master of the King" (maître de guitare du Roy).
