Charles Alexandre, vicomte de Calonne (20 January 1734 – 30 October 1802) was the French finance minister from 1783 to 1787.
Calonne was unpopular with both the nobles and the general populace, especially for suggesting new tax laws. He came under the criticism of the Comte de Mirabeau, who was exiled to Prussia for doing so. Crowds began burning effigies of the finance minister, who was eventually forced to leave the country in 1787, and was followed by several other ministers.
