Petar Todorov Gudev (Bulgarian: Петър Тодоров Гудев) (13 July 1863, Gradets – 8 May 1932, Sofia) was a leading Bulgarian liberal politician, who served as Prime Minister.

Gudev was appointed Prime Minister following the assassination of his predecessor Dimitar Petkov (with Dimitar Stanchov serving a few days as interim).[1] His reign proved fairly brief, running from 16 March 1907 until 28 January 1908, and during this time he became notorious for corruption, plundering public funds for his own use.[2]
