Emanuel was the second son of Prince Philipp Erasmus of Liechtenstein (11 September 1664 – 13 January 1704) and Countess Christina Theresa von Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rochefort (12 October 1665 – 14 April 1730). He was brother to Josef Wenzel, Prince of Liechtenstein.

In 1749 he became the 734th Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece.

They had thirteen children. Their eldest son became monarch of Liechtenstein when Emanuel's brother died without any surviving heirs.
