Charles Emmanuel of Savoy, (Turin 24 October 1770 – Chaillot, Paris 16 August 1800) was the 6th Prince of Carignano between 1780 and 1800, and the paternal grandfather of Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of a united Italy.

He was a son of Victor Amadeus II of Savoy-Carignano and Maria Jozefa of Lorraine, and a fifth-generation descendant of Thomas Francis, Prince of Carignano, founder of the Savoy-Carignano line of the House of Savoy.

On 24 October 1797 he married in Turin Princess Maria Christina of Saxony (1770–1851), daughter of Carl Christian Joseph of Saxony, Duke of Courland, himself son of Augustus III of Poland.

They had two children:

   * Charles Albert (1798 – 1849), Prince of Carignano, and King of Sardinia
   * Maria Elisabeth (1800 – 1856), Princess of Carignano, married Archduke Rainer of Austria

Charles Emmanuel died three years after his marriage in a French prison. He had fought against the French in the First Coalition War, but had made peace with the Republicans after the abdication of Charles Emmanuel IV of Sardinia. Soon after he became a suspect and was imprisoned in the Citadel of Turin. From there he was moved to Dijon and then to Chaillot in Paris, where he died.
