Abstract: We set up a real entropy function $h_\Bbb {R}$ on the space $\mathcal {M}’_d$ of Möbius conjugacy classes of real rational maps of degree $d$ by assigning to each class the real entropy of a representative $f\in \Bbb {R}(z)$; namely, the topological entropy of its restriction $f\restriction _{\hat {\Bbb {R}}}$ to the real circle. We prove a rigidity result stating that $h_\Bbb {R}$ is locally constant on the subspace determined by real maps quasi-conformally conjugate to $f$. As examples of this result, we analyze real analytic stable families of hyperbolic and flexible Lattès maps with real coefficients along with numerous families of degree $d$ real maps of real entropy $\log (d)$. The latter discussion moreover entails a complete classification of maps of maximal real entropy.
