Don Ferdinand de la Cerda (1253–1275) was the Crown Prince (infante) of Castile, eldest son of King Alfonso X of Castile and Violant of Aragon. His nickname, de la Cerda, means "of the bristle" in Spanish, a reference to being born with a strand of thick hair running down his chest.

In November 1268 he married Princess Blanche of France, the daughter of King Louis IX of France. They had two sons:
  • Alfonso de la Cerda , who married Matilde of Narbonne, daughter of Viscount Aimery VI of Narbonne.Medieval Iberia: An Encyclopedia, Ed. E. Michael Gerli and Samuel G. Armistead, (Routledge, 2003), 50. They had four sons and three daughters.
  • Fernando de la Cerda , who married Juana Núñez de Lara, called "la Palomilla", Lady of Lara & Herrera, daughter of Juan Núñez de Lara “el Mayor” and Teresa Álvarez de Azagra. They had one son and three daughters. One daughter, Blanca Núñez de Lara, was the mother-in-law to King Henry II of Castile.

Ferdinand predeceased his father in 1275 at Ciudad Real. His sons did not inherit the throne of their grandfather, since their uncle Sancho, usurped the throne.
