The two branches of the family: Petrópolis and Vassouras branch
Titles of the Imperial Family of Brazil
- The Emperor had the style Imperial Majesty;
- The Crown Prince had the title of Prince Imperial of Brazil with the style Imperial Highness;
- The eldest son of the Imperial Princes had the title of Prince of Grão-Pará with the style Imperial Highness;
- The other princes/princesses of the family were only Highness.
In 1909, the members of the Orléans-Braganza Branch of the Imperial Family signed an agreement with Prince Philippe, Duke of Orléans (1869–1926), the Head of the House of Orléans (the former Royal Family of France), called the "family pact". By this agreement, all of them were counted in the French line of succession, being properly styled Royal Highness. Therefore, from that agreement, the titles of the members of the Imperial Family of Brazil changed as follows:
- Head of the family (named The Prince of Brazil), Heir to the Headship (named Imperial Prince), and the eldest son of the Imperial Prince (Prince of Grão-Pará): Imperial and Royal Highness;
- Other princes/princesses of the Orléans-Braganza branch (Prince/Princess of Orléans-Braganza): Royal Highness;
- Members of the Saxe-Coburg-Braganza branch (Prince/Princess of Saxe-Coburg-Braganza): they kept the style Highness.
