Carlo III Tocco (1464–1518) was the titular ruler of Epirus (Arta) and Zakynthos, having succeeded his father Leonardo III Tocco (r. 1448–1479). He was the first child of Leonardo III and Milica Branković (1448–1464),[1] who died while giving birth to Carlo III.

During his lifetime, Carlo received pensions from the Kingdom of Naples and Popes.[2] By the end of Pope Alexander VI's reign, Carlo was captain of the Sacred College in Rome[3] and later served in the army of Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor.[2] He married Andronike Arianiti.
