Hassan Gouled Aptidon (Somali: Xasan Guuleed Abtidoon. Arabic: حسن جوليد أبتيدون‎) (October 15, 1916 – November 21, 2006) was the first President of Djibouti from 1977 to 1999.

He was born in a small village called Garissa in the Lughaya district of northern Somalia. He was born into the politically powerful Mamassan subclan of the Issa clan. He played an important role in Djibouti's struggle for independence from France. According to I.M. Lewis, "with the powerful support of the French electorate" Hassan Gouled campaigned against Mahamoud Harbi Farah of the Union Republicaine party, who sought to join the territory with neighboring Somalia. By the time of the 23 November 1958 elections, Mahamoud Harbi's party had disintegrated and with the majority of the Afar vote, his faction won election. Mahamoud Harbi subsequently fled Djibouti, and later died in a plane crash.
