The House of Orléans-Braganza (Portuguese: Casa de Orleães-Bragança) is a noble house, of French and Portuguese origin. It is a cadet branch of the House of Orléans, and descended from the House of Braganza. The house was founded with the marriage between Isabel of Braganza, Princess Imperial of Brazil, and Gaston of Orléans, Count of Eu. The house was never a reigning house, as Brazil's pure Braganza monarch, Pedro II, was deposed in 1889. The House's members are the current claimants to the Brazilian throne.
