Prince Emanuel Joseph Johann of Liechtenstein (2 February/3 February 1700, in Vienna – 15 January 1771, in Vienna) was the father and brother to two of Liechtenstein's monarchs.

Emanuel was the second son of Prince Philipp Erasmus of Liechtenstein (11 September 1664 – 13 January 1704) and Countess Christina Theresa von Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (12 October 1665 – 14 April 1730). He was brother to Josef Wenzel, Prince of Liechtenstein.

In 1749 he became the 734th Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece.

He married Maria Anna Antonia Gräfin von Dietrichstein-Weichselstädt Freiin zu Hollenburg und Finkenstein (Graz, 10 September 1706 - Vienna, 7 January 1777) on 14 January 1726 in Vienna. They had thirteen children. Their eldest son became monarch of Liechtenstein when Emanuel's brother died without any surviving heirs.
