Count Nikolai Nikolaevich Novosiltsev (1761–1836) was a Russian politician, an advisor to Tsar Alexander. He was the illegitimate son of a Russian nobleman, whose family connections secured for him an influential position at the heart of the Russian imperial court. Novosiltsev was often entrusted by Alexander with diplomatic missions to France, England and other states in Europe during the time of the Napoleonic Wars.
