Charles Thomas de Lorraine (7 March 1670 – 12 May 1704), prince de Vaudémont, was a field marshal in the Austrian army.
Charles Thomas was the only son of Charles Henri de Lorraine, prince de Vaudémont and Commercy and Anne Élisabeth de Lorraine-Elbeuf, and a grandson of Charles IV, Duke of Lorraine. His father used the style of prince de Vaudémont, although he held no corresponding territory, until 1708 when he received the allodial territory of Commercy from Leopold, Duke of Lorraine. Henceforth, the father reigned there as the Prince of Commercy, while Charles Thomas was styled the prince de Vaudémont.
He fought in Italy during the War of Spanish Succession under command of Prince Eugene of Savoy. He distinguished himself in the Battle of Cremona and Battle of Luzzara, and was made Fieldmarshal together with Guido Starhemberg in February 1704.
He was fatally wounded in a minor battle on 8 May 1704 near Ostiglia, and died 4 days later. He had no children.
