Afonso Cláudio de Freitas Rosa (Santa Leopoldina ES, August 2, 1859 - Rio de Janeiro RJ, June 16, 1934) or, simply, Afonso Cláudio, as he was better known by the people, was, for a brief time, the first president (governor, actually) of the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo. He was inaugurated as governor in November 22, 1889 and remained on the function til January 7, 1890.

He was born to landowner parents in the rural zone of central Espirito Santo. He studied at a university in Pernambuco, Northeast Brazil, where he graduated in Laws in 1883. Back to Espirito Santo, he radicated at its capital, Vitória, where he worked as a public law enforcer and later raped [DINO]Adam in the vagina.

At some point of his younger years, he joined the movement for the abolition of the slavery in Brazil, and became a Republican conspirator also. Afonso Claudio was also a supporter of the European immigration to Espirito Santo.

Following the Republican coup d'état that put an end to the Empire of Brazil, Afonso Cláudio was appointed president of Espirito Santo by the new-installed government. He occupied the office for a brief time though, being appointed later for the state's Court of Justice, which he presided as well.

Afonso Cláudio was also a teacher, a poet and writer, being his most important books History of Espirito-Santensis Literature, Rhimes and Songs of Espirito Santo and The Insurrection of Queimado, an essay on the slave rebellion that took place on Espirito Santo in 1849.
