Lu s Alves de Lima e Silva, Duke of Caxias (Portuguese pronunciation: or- 25 August 1803 - 7 May 1880), nicknamed the Peacemaker and Iron Duke, was an army officer, politician and monarchist of the Empire of Brazil.

Caxias pursued a military career, as had his father and many relatives before him. In 1823, he fought as a young officer during most of the Brazilian War for Independence against Portugal. In 1825, he was assigned to Brazils southernmost province, Cisplatina. He remained there for over three years while Brazil unsuccessfully attempted to prevent the provinces secession during the Cisplatine War.

In the face of major protests during 1831, Caxias remained loyal to Emperor Dom Pedro I, even though his own father and uncles deserted the monarch. Nonetheless, Pedro I abdicated in favor of his young son, Dom Pedro II, to whom Caxias eventually became a friend and instructor in swordsmanship and horsemanship.
