Paciano Mercado Rizal (b. March 7, 1851 – d. April 13, 1930) was the elder brother of the Philippine national hero, Jose Rizal.

Paciano was the one who foresee the well being of his siblings, including the young Jose. He was responsible of accompanying Jose to Biñan to receive a proper education under the same mentor- Maestro Justiniano Aquino Cruz. He also, accommodate Jose’s enrollment at Ateneo Municipal in 1872. He plays the role of Jose’s second father in the absence of their ageing parents and was the one whom Jose sought for advice when he decided to study abroad for advancement. The older Rizal was left then with the responsibility of informing their parent’s about Jose’s departure. He consoles his parents on their grief on the absence of their youngest son. Upon Jose’s stay abroad, he regularly sent him the stipend for his studies and for the publication of his first novel, the Noli.
