Robert Dowland (c. 1563-1626 – 1641) was an English lutenist and composer. He was the son of the lutenist and composer John Dowland. Throughout his lifetime he wrote almost 90 lute songs and other pieces written for the lute.

In 1610 he published two collections of music, A Varietie of Lute Lessons and A Musical Banquet (an anthology of work by other composers including his father). In 1626 his father died and Robert succeeded him as royal lutenist.
