Robert Bernard (13 March 1913 17 February 1990) was a German football player.

Born in Schweinfurt, Robert Bernard was the son of Jakob Bernard, an esteemed footballer in the postwar area of World War I in Schweinfurt, and the father of Günter Bernard, who was part of the runner-up squad of Germany at the 1966 FIFA World Cup and a Bundesliga winner with Werder Bremen in 1965.

Robert Bernard himself played two times for Germany in his career, both as fullback in the successive matches against Luxembourg (9 0) and Norway (0 2) at the 1936 Summer Olympics. The surprise defeat against Norway eliminated the host nation from the tournament and got coach Otto Nerz sacked. Nerz' successor Sepp Herberger, who later handed his son Günter caps for Germany, did not see use in playing Robert Bernard any further.
