Karl Friedrich Emil zu Dohna-Schlobitten (4 March 1784 – 21 February 1859) was a Prussian fieldmarshal.
In 1798 Dohna joined the Prussian Army, where he met Gerhard von Scharnhorst, whose daughter Julie (1788–1827) he married in 1809. Dohna left the Prussian Army after Prussia had to deploy subsidiary troops in Napoleon's Russian campaign and joined the Imperial Russian Army instead. He commanded the 2nd Hussar Regiment of the Tsarist Russian–German Legion and fought at Borodino. In 1812 he took part in the negotiations of the Convention of Tauroggen, rejoined the Prussian Army and commanded the 8th Uhlan Regiment in the Battle of Waterloo.
