A história do último Rei português - DiarioEconomico.com

D. Duarte asked the cable History Channel to prepare a couple of documentaries: one about D. Nuno Álvares Pereira and another about the period when the Portuguese court was moved to Brazil. The suggestions were made last Tuesday, in Lisbon, during the presentation of D. Manuel II, Rei Traído (a documentary that the cable channel will air next February 25 and which had D. Duarte's participation.
D. Manuel II was the last king of Portugal and lived the exile in Twickenham (outskirts of London), where he became godfather of 300 children..

Jornal de Notícias - Último rei de Portugal renasce no Canal de História

"D. Manuel II, betrayed king" is more than a mere biographical report; it drafts a historical portrait of the socio-economic and political context that surrounded the life of an 18-year-old man, a lover of music and literature, who was thrown to a throne, which he had not been prepared for, after the violent murders of his father and brother, and who suddendly died in 1932, without any descendant.

Through videos and photographs (two of the king's passions), as well as his private journal (which accompanies his whole life and where he describes with detail the 1908 regicide), this 55-minute-long documentary rescues one of the most unknown Portuguese kings.

Aired last Monday, it was directed by Rui Pinto de Almeida and counted on Prof. Mendo Castro Henriques' historical consult and included, among others, the testimonies of D. Duarte de Bragança and of Doris Bligh, a contemporary neighbour of Twickenham (London), where D. Manuel II and his wife, D.ª Augusta Vitória, lived the exhile and who still remembers the monarchs.

"That locality still gathers a collective memory of D. Manuel II. Between 1914 and 1932, the king became the godfather of 300 British children, which prooves his charisma and afectuon", says the producer Rui Pinto de Almeida.

D.Augusta Victoria

I've asked in other Forums and Message Boards and I am beginning to despair.

Has someone got a photo of Count Douglas, D. Augusta's 2nd husband.
I am wondering if he ever exhisted as there seems to be no trace of him.

Thanks in advance

Yes, he existed. Here is his profile, but no picture.

I've searched everywhere I could, but I didn't find any picture of Karl. It's quite strange, nor even a picture of the wedding with Dª Augusta...

Found this at the Franco-Iberian Royal Message Board.

The Franco-Iberian Royals Message Board: Portuguese Memorial Unveiled

I am pleased that the community did not forget him.

Channel History recently re-run the program on King D.Manuel II and his exile in Twickenham.

He was a very beloved member of the local community, and a supporter of the local Catholic Church, to whom he bequested some items such a christening silver shell.

New biography on Manuel II and Victoria Augusta.

Great news! The respected historian Ricardo Mateos Sainz de Medrano has just written the history of D. Manuel II in his exile.
It´s a personal biography without politics. Queen Victoria Augusta plays a major role in this book.
Ricardo Mateos searched the archives of Sigmaringen and brings many new facts to light.

I'd love to read this book on King Manuel II but have not managed to buy. King Manuel II Kings is my favorite. It was a good king and did his best to Portugal.

It´s ver ysad he was exiled - despite his youth he tried so hard to make the portugese monarchy popular again and more accessible and he toured the country to get in touch with the people and learn about their problems, and that at a time long befor it became usual for monarchs to search the people´s goodwill! He really didn´t deserve this treatment and I strongly believe Portugal would have profited if he had a chance for a long reign.

I agree with everything you said. D. Manuel II was a good King and I believe that if I had continued his reign, would have done a lot for Portugal.
