Raimundo Fernández Villaverde y García del Rivero, Marquis of Pozo Rubio, (20 January 1848–15 July 1905) was a Spanish statesman.

Born in Madrid, Raimundo Fernandez Villaverde graduated at age 21 at the Central University of Madrid in Law Studies. He later became Professor of this university after receiving the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.

He joined the Conservative Party and was elected to the Spanish Parliament in 1872 as representative for Caldas.
