John VI de Vendôme (died 1365), Count of Vendôme and Castres (1354-1365) was a member of the House of Montoire and was son of Bouchard VI (1290-1354) and Alix de Bretagne (1297-1377).

He lived mainly in Castres and fought at Poitiers (1356) where he was captured.[1] In 1362, a troop of Gascon and English took the city and imprisoned Countess Jeanne de Ponthieu. Several attempts to deliver the city by force failed, and John VI had to be resolved to pay a ransom for the city.
