Armand Julie Beauvais (1783-1843) 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 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. He did not ultimately contest the election, and André Bienvenue Roman was elected unopposed. Governor Beauvais was then elected to the Louisiana Senate until 1834.

Beauvais died in New Orleans in 1843.
