Charles Malo François Lameth (5 October 1757 – 28 December 1832) was a French politician and soldier.
He was deputy to the Estates-General of 1789, which subsequently became the National Assembly and National Constituent Assembly. As the Assembly began to divide into factions, Lameth, a constitutional monarchist, was identified with the Feuillants. Since the French Revolution moved toward a Republic, he emigrated to Hamburg.
He returned to France under the Consulate, and was appointed governor of Würzburg (in the Duchy of Würzburg) under the First Empire. In 1814, he rose to the rank of Lieutenant General. Like his brother Alexandre Lameth (but unlike his other one, Théodore de Lameth), Charles joined the Bourbon camp after the Restoration, succeeding Alexandre as deputy in 1829. In the final years of his life, he was nonetheless a noted supporter of the July Monarchy.
He died on 28 December 1832.
