Charles Eugène Espidon Goupil (14 December 1831 – 24 October 1896) was a French Mexican philanthropist and collector.

In 1889 he bought Joseph Marius Alexis Aubin's collection of 384 Mesoamerican manuscripts. On 14 May 1864, he married Augustine Élie. After Goupil's death, his wife donated the collection to the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.

Goupil was the great-uncle of artist Jean Charlot.
