Maria Ana Francisca of Braganza (Maria Ana Francisca Josefa Rita Joana; 7 October 1736 – 16 May 1813), was a Portuguese infanta daughter of King Joseph I of Portugal and his wife Mariana Victoria of Spain. She escaped from mainland Portugal to Brazil with her family when Napoleon Bonaparte ordered the invasion of Portugal. She died in Rio de Janeiro on May 16, 1813, aged 76, and was moved to Lisbon. Her remains were transferred to the Convento do Desagravo do Santíssimo Sacramento, in Lisbon, in front of the Church of Santa Engrácia (Pantheon). With the death of the last nun residing in the convent, in 1901, it passed to the state. Maria Ana's remains were then finally transferred to the Pantheon of Royal House of Braganza, in the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora. She never married or had any children.
