Antonio de Almeida [Portuguese: António] (6 September 1867 – 14/15 December 1975) was a Portuguese centenarian who was the oldest known living man and probably the oldest living person in Portugal at time of his death.


Antonio de Almeida was born in Portugal on 6 September 1867. At the age of 105, Antonio lived with his daughter-in-law Maria do Ceu Campos de Almeida and still worked in the fields. He still remembered the marriage of King D. Carlos to Queen D. Amelia, which took place in 1886.

At the age of 107, he was still quite lucid, living with the support of his family and friends. On his 108th birthday in 1975, de Almeida still had some vitality, although he felt more physically fragile.

Antonio de Almeida died in Fajao, Pampilhosa da Serra, Coimbra District, Portugal between 14 and 15 December 1975, aged between 108 years, 99 and 100 days.
