Duke Charles Frederick of Holstein-Gottorp (30 April 1700 – 18 June 1739) was the son of Frederick IV of Holstein-Gottorp and his consort, Hedvig Sophia, daughter of King Charles XI of Sweden. He became reigning duke in infancy, upon his father's death in 1702, and all his life was a legitimate claimant to the throne of Sweden, as pro forma heir to Charles XII, who was his maternal uncle.

He is the father of Peter III of Russia, and as such he was a patrilineal ancestor of all Russian emperors after Catherine II.
