Fernando Primo de Rivera, (1831-1921), was a Spanish politician and soldier.

He served in several wars, including the 1848 and 1866 Madrid insurrections and the second Carlista War. When forces under his command in the second Carlista War captured Estella, he was named Marquess of Estella. Promoted to Captain General in 1895, he temporarily suspended hostilities in the Philippine Revolution through negotiations with Emilio Aguinaldo and acted briefly as Governor-General of the Philippines. He was also the uncle of Miguel Primo de Rivera, the Spanish dictator.
