Prudente José de Morais e Barros (October 4, 1841 - December 3, 1902) was the third president of Brazil (the first civilian, and the first to be elected by direct popular ballot, under the permanent provisions of Brazil's 1891 Constitution). His presidency lasted from November 15, 1894 until November 15, 1898. His term was marked by the War of Canudos, a campesinant revolt in northeast of the country that was crushed by the Army. He also had to face a breakup of diplomatic relations with Portugal, where the mediation of the Queen Victoria was able to reach peace.

Previously he had been the Governor of the State of São Paulo and President of the Senate from 1891 to 1894.

The city of Presidente Prudente is named after him.
