St. Marie-Nicolas-Antoine Daveluy (16 March 1818 – 30 March 1866) was a French missionary and saint. Father Daveluy began work as a missionary in Korea, becoming fluent in the language. He wrote a Korean-French dictionary and other books about the Catholic Church and its history in Korean. He was arrested during a campaign by the Korean government against Christians. Imprisoned and tortured, he staunchly defended his Catholic faith. Sentenced to death, he asked to be executed on Good Friday 30 March. He was beheaded at a Korean naval base in Galmaemot near present-day Boryeong. His feast day is March 30, and he is also venerated along with the rest of the 103 Korean martyrs on September 20.
