Don Carlos Manuel O'Donnell y Álvarez de Abreu, 2nd Duke of Tetuan Grandee of Spain, 9th Marquis of Altamira and 2nd Count of Lucena (Valencia, 1 June 1834 – Madrid, 9 February 1903) was a Spanish noble and politician who served four times as Minister of State, the name which then received the Spanish Foreign Minister.

The Duke was son of Carlos María O'Donnell y Joris, eldest brother of General Leopoldo O'Donnell, 1st Duke of Tetuan (several times Prime Minister of Spain), and Maria del Mar Álvarez de Abreu y Rodríguez de Albuerne, 8th Marquesa of Altamira and the granddaughter of Don Manuel Rodriguez de Albuerne y Pérez de Tagle, 5th Marquis of Altamira. In 1867 after his uncle's death, he inherited all his title and fortune.
