Jean-Bretagne-Charles de La Trémoille (February 5, 1737–May 19, 1792), 7th duc de Thouars, was a French soldier and the son of Charles Armand René de La Trémoille and his wife, Marie Hortense de La Tour d'Auvergne.

La Trémoille began his military career in the Seven Years' War as the head of the regiment of Aquitaine-Cavalry. He was seriously wounded and afterwards promoted to the rank of sergeant, and later of brigadier, of the armies of the king.

On June 27, 1763, he married again to Marie-Maximilienne, princess of Salm-Kyrburg (1744-1790) the daughter of Philip Joseph, Prince of Salm-Kyrburg and Maria Theresia von Hornes.
