Louis Dimier (11 February 1865 – 21 November 1943) was a French art historian and royalist.
Dimier was among the many early members of the Action Française who were practicing Catholics, and included Bernard de Vésins and the essayist Léon de Montesquiou. They helped Charles Maurras (1868–1952) develop the royalist league's pro-Catholic policies.
In 1915 during the First World War Dimier published Les troncons du serpent: idée d'une dislocation de l'empire allemnd at d'une reconstitution des Allemagnes in which he advocated partitioning Germany into around one hundred free cities and allocating German lands to Poland and Sweden, with the Rhineland and the Ruhr to constitute a workers' state entrusted to the trade unions.
