Clarice de' Medici (1493–1528) was the daughter of Piero di Lorenzo de' Medici and Alfonsina Orsini.

Born in Florence, she was the granddaughter of Lorenzo de' Medici, niece of Pope Leo X and sister to Lorenzo II de' Medici. After her brother's premature death in 1519, she educated his daughter Catherine, the future Queen of France.
