Austrian Brazilians (Portuguese: Austro-brasileiro, Austríaco brasileiro) refers to Brazilians of full, partial, or predominantly Austrian ancestry, or Austrian-born people residing in Brazil. The largest South-American nation is home to the second largest German-Austrian population outside their respective nations, after the USA. German is the second most spoken language in the country. The author Stefan Zweig who wrote about Brazil, and the Habsburg-Lorraine Maria Leopoldina of Austria, Empress consort of Brazil, are among the most prominent Austrians to settle in Brazil.
