Robert Ben Madison (born Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 6 July 1965), also known as King Robert the First of Talossa, was the founder and first ruling monarch of the Kingdom of Talossa (with two brief interruptions) from its creation on the 26 December 1979, until the 16 August 2005, when his wife's grandchild succeded him as King Louis I of Talossa.

Madison is known in the micronational world not only for the foundation of Talossa, but also for claiming to have coined the term "micronation" and for founding of the League of Secessionist States in 1980, in which he was Secretary-General from its founding until 1983, when he was succeeded by Nathan Freeburg.
