João de Lemos Seixas Castelo Branco (1819 – 1890) was a Portuguese journalist, poet and dramatist.

Lemos was born in Peso da Régua. He was known as "the troubadour" (in Portuguese: Trovador) in Coimbra, where he graduated in Law, thanks the publication of the poetic newspaper O Trovador (repository of poetic productions of a group of young students).
