Manuel, Prince of Portugal (11 November 1531 – 14 April 1537), was the Prince of Portugal from 1535 to his death in 1537. He was the fifth child son of king John III of Portugal and Catherine of Austria.

In 1535, his father officially designated him as Prince of Portugal, taking the place of his eldest sister Infanta Maria Manuela. However, after his premature death, two years later, before reaching six years old, his younger brother Infante Filipe became the next Prince of Portugal.
