Prince of Brazil (Portuguese: Príncipe do Brasil) is the royal title of the Empire of Brazil, granted to the sons or daughters of the Emperor and Princes of Brazil who were not the heir to the throne. It is also used to denote a grandson or granddaughter in the male line of a reigning monarch, with some exceptions.

Style of Address[edit]

A Prince or Princess of Brazil would be addressed with the style of Highness. If the Prince or Princess also had a title of higher standing, such as Prince Imperial of Brazil, then the Prince or Princess would be addressed with the style linked with the highest title they possess. Since the agreement between the french House of Orléans and the brazilian House of Orléans-Braganza in 1909, the Princes of Brazil figure among the suitors to the French throne with the title of Prince of Orléans-Braganza and may be addressed as Royal Highness. Princes with higher Brazilian titles may be adressed with the style linked with his title plus the royal concerning the french pretense. For example: His Imperial and Royal Highness.[1]

Privileges[edit]

A Prince or Princess of Brazil would receive financial assistance from birth until death, unless the Prince or Princess married a foreign-born spouse or moved out of the country.[2]
