Frătăuții Vechi (German: Alt Fratautz) is a commune located in Suceava County, Romania. It is composed of two villages, Frătăuții Vechi and Măneuți (Hungarian: Andrásfalva).

From 1786 to 1941, Măneuți village was inhabited by the Székelys of Bukovina.[citation needed] In the 1780s, 16 ethnic German families settled in Frătăuții Vechi in the course of the Josephine colonization.[2]
