Lathum is a village in the municipality of Zevenaar in the province of Gelderland, the Netherlands.

The village was first mentioned between 1294 and 1295 as Latheym, and means "settlement of Laeta (lit: serf)".[3] Lathum developed near the Castle Bahr en Lathum. The castle was first mentioned in 1243, and destroyed in 1495. In the early 17th century, a manor house was built in its place. The Dutch Reformed Church probably started as a chapel. It was built in the late-15th century and has 14th century elements.[4] In 1840, it was home to 242 people.[5] In the 1990s, Riverparc was constructed on the location of the former brickworks.[5]
