Eremia Grigorescu (November 28, 1863July 21, 1919) was a Romanian artillery General during World War I, and Minister of War in the Constantin Coandă cabinet (October-November 1918).

Born in Golăşei, Gorj County, Grigorescu studied at the Bucharest officers' and artillery applications school, and later in France, at the Sorbonne. He also attended special artillery and administration courses at the French Ministry of War.

In 1917, during the Romanian Campaign, Grigorescu was the commander of the Romanian armies in the Battle of Mărăşeşti. It was there that he achieved his greatest success, managing to defeat Imperial German troops led by General August von Mackensen. After the battle, Grigorescu was nicknamed the "hero of Mărăşeşti". His victory was praised in Entente countries, and earned the general a sword sent to him by Yoshihito, the Emperor of Japan. He was also a recipient of the Order of Michael the Brave.
