António dos Santos Ramalho Eanes, (born 25 January 1935) is a Portuguese general and politician who was the 16th President of Portugal from 1976 to 1986.
After a long military career in the Portuguese Colonial Wars, he was stationed in Portuguese Angola when the 25 April revolution of 1974 took place. He joined the Movimento das Forças Armadas (MFA or Armed Forces Movement) and after returning to Portugal, he was made president of RTP (Portuguese public television). He ordered the military operations against the pro-communist radical faction of the MFA on 25 November 1975, an event known as the 25 de Novembro, ending that year's "hot summer" (Verão quente). In 1976 he was elected President of Portugal. At the end of 1980 he was re-elected, serving until February 1986. After his presidency, he headed the Democratic Renewal Party (Portuguese: Partido Renovador Democrático), resigning in 1987.
He is also a Member of the Portuguese Council of State, as a former elected President of Portugal. He rejected any suggestion of becoming a Marshal, considering the title unnecessary.
