Margrave Charles William Eugene of Baden-Rodemachern (1627–1666), was Margrave of Baden-Rodemachern and canon in Cologne. He was a son of Margrave Herman Fortunatus from his first marriage with Antonia Elizabeth (d. 12 January 1635), a daughter of Christopher of Criechingen.

He was chamberlain to King Ferdinand IV and canon of the cathedral chapter in Cologne. With his death, the younger line of Baden-Rodemachern died out and Baden-Rodemachern fell back to Baden-Baden — although Rodemachern itself was occupied by France at the time.[1]
