Artemy "Arthur" Ivanovich Cherep-Spiridovich (Russian Cyrillic: Артемий "Артур" Иванович Череп-Спиридович; September 8, 1867 - October 22, 1926) was a Russian Tsarist (White) loyalist who fled Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 and ultimately settled in the United States, spending his later years engaged in reactionary, anti-Bolshevist politics in Europe and America, notably publishing an English-language book entitled Secret World Government or "The Hidden Hand" (1926), an anti-Semitic treatise that proposed a global conspiracy orchestrated by three hundred Jewish families.

His claimed noble title of count was not of Russian origin and had been reputedly granted to him by Pope Pius X, while his claimed military rank of Major General (Флота генерал-майор) would have been attained during his time in the Imperial Russian Navy.
