Charlotte County is a county located in the south central part of the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 12,586. Its county seat is Charlotte Court House. The county was formed in 1764 from Lunenburg County, and it is named for Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III of England.

Charlotte is a semi-dry county, meaning restaurants may not serve liquor by the drink but beer and wine can be sold by grocery and convenience stores. The County is a predominately rural area and is one of the few counties in Virginia without a traffic signal. (Bath County & Mathews County are the others.)
