Peter Evertsen (b. 1234 – d. 1301) was a Nilfgaardian official, confidant of Imperator Emhyr var Emreis, chief chamberlain of the Nilfgaardian Army during Northern Wars and from, from 1290 until his imprisonment, imperial treasurer of the crown. He entered the office when he was fifteen and many historians, including Effenberg and Talbot in their Encyclopaedia Maxima Mundi, considered him one of the true architects of the Empire's power.

While serving as the main bailiff during the second war, he issued a decree which essentially called for the annihilation of Aedirn, Lyria and Rivia. Later, during the reign of Morvran Voorhis, he was falsely accused of abuse of power, convicted, and imprisoned at Winneburg Castle where he was executed by hanging in 1301. Ultimately, he was cleared, though posthumously, by the Imperator Jan Calveit in 1328.
