Mikhail Ivanovich Semevsky (Russian: Михаил Иванович Семевский; 1837–92) was a Russian amateur historian who focused on the era of palace revolutions and the history of 18th-century Russia.

Of noble birth, Semevsky received a military education in St. Petersburg and did not retire from civil service until 1882.[1] He assembled the memoirs of no less than 850 individuals, many written on his own request.[1] Semevsky published them through Herzen's Free Russian Press in London before establishing the Russkaya Starina monthly in 1870.

His younger brother, Vasily Semevsky (1849-1916), was a historian of Narodnik bend. The Russkaya Starina was published under Vasily's auspices until 1877, although the printing press was effectively run by Mikhail until his death in 1892.
