Ernesto Rodolfo Hintze Ribeiro, (Portuguese pronunciation: [eɾˈnɛʃtu ʁuˈdoɫfu ˈĩtzɨ ʁiˈbɐjɾu]; Ponta Delgada, Azores Islands, November 7, 1849 – Lisbon, August 1, 1907) was a prominent Portuguese politician. His name sometimes appears styled as Ernesto Rudolfo, Ernesto Rodolpho Hintze Ribeiro and Ernst Rudolph Hintze Ribeiro.

He was a prominent parliamentarian and Peer of the Realm, Attorney-General of the Crown, Minister of Public Works, of Finance and Foreign Affairs as well as uncontested leader of the Regenerator Party, holding the position of President of the Council of Ministers (Prime Minister) thrice (February 22, 1893 – February 5, 1897; July 26, 1900 – October 20, 1904; March 19, 1906 – May 19, 1906). He was one of the dominant politicians of the final part of the Portuguese Constitutional Monarchy, occupying the post of Prime Minister longer than any other in his time. He was responsible for important reforms, some of them are still valid, such as the insular autonomy for the Azores and Madeira islands (1895), the pharmacies' law, and forest's law (1901).

He was made effective Councillor of State in 1891, received many decorations, among them the Great-Cross of the Order of the Tower and Sword. He was associate of the Royal Academy of Sciences.
