Thanks so much Elsa for posting these pictures. It seems a very happy family.

This was posted by Jose on the Franco-Iberian Royals MB:

'Flash Magazine in Lisbon announces:
Infante D. Henrique, duke of Coimbra, has announced his engagement to Isabel Nogueira.
The wedding will take place in ... 2 years time, in order they will have time to know each other better.
Infante D. Henrique is the family "pinga-amor". '


Apparantly the Duke of Braganca is not to thrilled by his brothers choise. Does anybody know anything more about the bride-to-be?

I definately am. My portuguese friend hads the same reaction, as it was assumed that Enrique was not of the marrying kind. Apparently not many people know him well because the surprised reactions on the franco-iberian royals MB were about being gay, slightly retarded or a womaniser. Anyway, apparenly he will be a married man soon, to a social climber (hopefully for Enrique, with money).

As the wedding will take place in two(!) years I would be surprised if it would actually come to that, but maybe I am just to sceptical.

I wouldn't call him a womaniser (well, at least not in my concept of what an womaniser is: i.e. a heartthrob or a woman abuser). D. Henrique is an habitué of parties and social events, but definitely not a heartthrob!... And I don't know how can a person be a womaniser and gay, at the same time

Well, anyway, that Flash magazine is anything except a reliable source. But we'll see if the news becomes official or not... As far as I know, Isabel Nogueira is a socialite and she had a previous religious marriage, so that explains why D. Duarte wouldn't see such marriage with good eyes...

Thanks, rchainho, for posting it. Here's what the text says:

Quote:
During a dinner of friends, Isabel Nogueira and Dom Enrique confessed to Flash that they are engaged: "We already know each other for quite some time and there has always existed chemistry between us, but now we thought that perhaps it’s time to go further on the relationship", confessed Isabel Nogueira. However, the ceremony will have to wait 2 years, "the sufficient time to know each other in a better way, to create common habits; that courtship period which is very important and that we didn’t enjoy sufficiently yet".

In case it really ends up taking place, this will certainly be one of the most exciting marriages of the next times, since D. Henrique is brother of D. Duarte Pio.
According to friends of the couple, if everything runs smoothly, the knot shall happen in the Palace of Pena. The godparents are already chosen, and this invitation was addressed to Lili Caneças* and Carlos Fonseca Ferreira. João and Teresa Campos Henriques will be in charge of the banquet, that will certainly be carried with all the pomp and circumstance.

Questioned on the fact of this "secret" being so well-kept, Isabel Nogueira explains: "I do not want to create a circus around this. I must have redoubled care, since Dom Enrique is part of a royal family, which we all must respect". The truth is that D. Henrique revealed to Flash "an enormous affection and admiration. She is a fantastic woman, full of strength and energy, who has conquered me very long ago".
* This woman is the “mother”, or should I call her the most ridiculous figure of the Portuguese jet set.

Second article:

Quote:
D. Duarte does not comment the marriage of his brother

Confronted with the relationship and the supposed marriage between D. Henrique and Isabel Nogueira, D. Duarte preferred to remain silent. However, Flash talked to sources close to D. Duarte, who said that Isabel Nogueira, as a divorcee, couldn’t marry in the Church, which would constitute a shock for the royal family. This does not mean however that the marriage wouldn’t be approved just because it cannot obey to the Catholic rites. The same source adds: "I don't know if D. Henrique would dare to abdicate from these religious principles that are so rooted in the Portuguese royal family".

D. Duarte, who has always struggled to remain away from polemics, took advantage of this Christmas season to attend a circus spectacle, accompanied by his wife, D.ª Isabel, and their three children, Afonso, Francisca and Dinis.

You mean Lili Canecas, right? I had her as a wallpaper on my computer, together with her dutch equivalent, for a while.

Thanks for the articles and the translations. Is the bride-to-be rich?

Not really... she's a co-editor of a "pink" magazine.

QUEENS OF PORTUGAL

Throughout its long history, the Portuguese monarchy had had only two reigning queens: D. Maria I and D. Maria II. All the others were consorts. Some are rarely mentioned in the books, others belong to that category of protagonists that Time can not rub out. These are the women behind the men.

1st Dinasty:

(reign 1146-1157) D. Mafalda de Sabóia (married D. Afonso Henriques)
(r. 1185-1198) D. Dulce de Aragão (m. D. Sancho I)
(r. 1211-1220) D. Urraca de Castela (m. D. Afonso II)
(r. 1239-1246 a) D. Mécia Lopes de Hero (m. D. Sancho II)
(r. 1248-1253) D. Matilde de Bolonha (m. D. Afonso III)
(r. 1253-1279) D. Beatriz de Castela (m. D. Afonso III)
(r. 1282-1325) D. Isabel de Aragão (m. D. Dinis)
(r. 1325-1357) D. Beatriz de Castela (m. D. Afonso IV)
(r. 1360 b) D. Inês de Castro (m. D. Pedro I)
(r. 1371-1383) D. Leonor de Telles de Menezes (m. D. Fernando I)

____________
a - D.ª Mécia de Lopes Haro is usually not considered as Queen of Portugal, due to the fact that her wedding to D. Sancho II was annulled by the Pope).
b - According to tradition, after being proclaimed King of Portugal, D. Pedro I ordered his lover, Inês de Castro, to be exhumed, declared as his legitimate wife and posthumously Queen of Portugal. They incarnate one of all times most famous love-stories.

2nd Dinasty:

(r. 1387-1415) D. Filipa de Lencastre (m. D. João I)
(r. 1433-1438) D. Leonor de Aragão (m. D. Duarte)
(r. 1447-1455) D. Isabel (m. D. Afonso V)
(r. 1475-1481) D. Joana de Castela (m. D. Afonso V)
(r. 1481-1495) D. Leonor, Infanta de Portugal (m. D. João II)
(r.1497-1498) D. Isabel de Aragão (m. D. Manuel I)
(r. 1500-1517) D. Maria de Aragão (m. D. Manuel I)
(r. 1518-1521) D. Leonor, Infanta de Espanha (m. D. Manuel I)
(r. 1525-1557) D. Catarina de Áustria (m. D. João III)

Dona Augusta Vitória (née Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen) was the last woman to marry a king of Portugal (D. Manuel II). However, as the wedding took place after the monarchy was abolished, she did never receive the title of Queen of Portugal. It was the end of a long chain of strong or fragile, beautiful or famously ill-favoured, maquiavelic or saintly women... in the kingdom of Portugal.
