Armand Julie Beauvais (September 6, 1783 – November 18, 1843) was a Justice of the Peace, a Member of the Louisiana House of Representatives, Speaker of the Louisiana House of Representatives, President of the Louisiana Senate and the seventh Governor of Louisiana.

He was born September 6, 1783, in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana. He was serving as president of the Louisiana Senate, to which he had been elected as a Whig, when Governor Pierre Derbigny was killed. Derbigny was thrown from his carriage on October 6, 1828, ten months into his term as governor. Beauvais served as acting governor for three months and then resigned to run for a full term as governor in the special election of 1830. He ended up placing third in the election with 18% of the vote. Governor Beauvais was then elected to the Louisiana Senate and served until 1834.

Beauvais died in New Orleans in 1843.
