Robert Todd Lytle (May 19, 1804 - December 22, 1839) was a politician who represented Ohio in the United States House of Representatives from 1833-1835.
Lytle was born in Williamsburg, Ohio, a nephew of John Rowan. He attended the common schools and Cincinnati College, and studied law in Louisville, Kentucky, where he was admitted to the bar in 1824. He commenced the practice of his profession in Cincinnati, Ohio.
He was elected county prosecuting attorney, and a member of the State house of representatives in 1828 and 1829. He was then elected as a Jacksonian to the Twenty-third Congress and served from March 4, 1833, until March 10, 1834, when he resigned. He was subsequently reelected to fill the vacancy caused by his own resignation and served from December 27, 1834, to March 3, 1835.
After running as an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1834 to the Twenty-fourth Congress, Lytle resumed his law practice. He served as surveyor general of public lands in the Northwest Territory in 1836, and major general of Ohio Militia in 1838.
