Louis Henri Joseph de Bourbon, Duke of Bourbon, Prince of Condé (duc de Bourbon, duc d'Enghien, duc de Guise, duc de Bellegarde, comte de Sancerre; 18 August 1692 – 27 January 1740) was head of the cadet Bourbon-Condé branch of the French royal House of Bourbon from 1710 to his death, and served as prime minister to his kinsman Louis XV from 1723 to 1726.

Despite succeeding to the House of Condé in 1709, he never used the title preferring to be known by the title Duke of Bourbon; he was also known as Monsieur le Duc. As a member of the reigning House of Bourbon, he was a Prince du Sang.
