Charles III Le Moyne, 2e Baron de Longueuil' was the son of Charles le Moyne Baron de Longueuil, and brother of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, Prince of Louisianne. While his father ruled as Governor of Ville-Marie, he was named Commandant of Fort Niagara on April 28, 1726.

In June of 1733, Charles III was named Major of the military troops of the Government of Ville-Marie; then in 1739, he was sent to Lower Louisianne to help his brother against the native Chicachas. He returned to Montréal in 1740; and a few years later, on May 23, 1749, Louis XV named him Governor of Montreal. After the death of the Governor of New France Marquis de la Jonquière, the Intendant of New Francy François Bigot gave him the position of Administrator of New France; but he did not get permission from the King to keep his position, because he had named the successor of Marquis de la Jonquière before his death marquis de Menneville. In August of 1752, he became once more Governor of Montreal.
