Prince of Orléans-Braganza is a noble title attributed to all direct and legitimate descendants of Prince Gaston, Count of Eu and Isabel I of Brazil.

The Royal House of France, of which the Gaston, Count Eu was a member by birth until he renounced his French dynastic rights in 1864 after marrying Isabel, Princess Imperial of Brazil, specified that the title of Prince of Orléans-Braganza it was not part of the noble titles of French royalty, but recognized, informally, because the monarchy had been abolished in France since 1848, along with all noble titles, and as a non-reigning house it did not have any powers for formal recognition - such a title as part of a distinct house of the Royal House of France (the House of Orléans), as well as that the princes of Orléans-Braganza would have the same honors as the princes of the Royal House of France and would be treated as "Royal Highness".
