A French Brazilian (French: Franco-Brésilien, Portuguese: Franco Brasileiro) is a Brazilian citizen of full, partial, or predominantly French ancestry, or a French-born person residing in Brazil. Between 1850 and 1965 around 100,000 French people immigrated to Brazil. The country received the second largest amount of French immigrants to South America after Argentina (239,000). It is estimated that there are from 500,000 to 1 million Brazilians of French descent today.[1]

The Brazilian Imperial Family originates of House of Orléans, the French Royal Family.
