Antoine Simon (1736 – 28 July 1794) was a French cobbler and a member of the Cordeliers Club during the French Revolution.

In 1793, Simon was appointed to watch over the imprisoned Dauphin Louis-Charles in the Temple. Royalist authors would depict him as a cruel torturer. Although these characteristics have never been proven, Simon did have a brutish nature, insisting on teaching the Dauphin well-known indecent songs. After the Dauphin had remained out of the public eye for a long time, Simon refused to comment on the topic.
