Notes[edit]

  • Catita and Marieta Alves, 5th and 6th First Ladies of Brazil, respectively, were daughters of President Rodrigues Alves, since his wife Ana Guilhermina de Oliveira Borges was deceased when he took office.
  • Brazil did not have a First Lady from 1964 to 1967 (Castelo Branco was a widower of Argentina Viana) and from 1992 to 1994 (Itamar Franco was divorced from Ana Elisa Surerus).
  • There was no First Lady or First Gentleman from 2011 to 2016 because President Dilma Rousseff was unmarried. She was twice divorced when elected, and, as of January 2017, remains unmarried. Her daughter, Paula Rousseff de Araújo, sometimes accompanied her on state visits in an unofficial capacity.
