The king died immediately, Prince Luís Filipe was mortally wounded and Infante Manuel was hit in the arm. Days later, Manuel was proclaimed King of Portugal… he would be the last king of the fragile monarchy and his reign would last just 2 years (1908-1910).
Talking about the regicide, and since 99 years have just passed, I though it was interesting to show some photos of the Palace of Vila Viçosa, where King D. Carlos and Prince Luís Filipe passed their last night.



The royal bedrooms are almost untouched and have kept some of the personal objects of the royal couple. In the King’s bedroom, a few porcelains painted by D. Carlos and his grandfather, D. Fernando de Saxe-Coburgo-Gotha (Prince-consort of Queen D.ª Maria II) can be admired.

On the other hand, an album of drawings made by the Queen (entitled Mon Dessins) can be found in D.ª Amélia’s bedroom.

Besides, during the time he lived in the palace, D. Carlos (who was a talented painter) redecorated the rooms with some of his paintings, namely drawings, watercolours, landscapes, portraits of common people or pictures of his beloved boats.


Here are some pictures of Queen D.ª Amélia's bedroom, King D. Carlos' bedroom, the Room of the Dukes and its ceiling, the Room of the Medusa, the kitchen.

I know that what I'm going to say isn't about the portuguese monarchy, but I was at Royal Weddings Message Board and I found the official photo of he counts of Wessex wedding and I just noticied that on the top left there´s a paint that seems Queen Maria II of Portugal, and at the left wall there's another painting very similar with Queen Estefania, I was wondering if those are real paintings belonging to the British ones.

You have a good eye!...
The portrait on the top left seems indeed the one that was painted for D.ª Maria II around April 1826. I can't figure though why it's hanged there... Maybe because she was received in Windsor, when she passed some time in the court of George IV?...


I don't think however that the other one is D.ª Estefânia. The daughter-in-law of D.ª Maria II had one major portrait (which is hanged on the walls of the Palace of Ajuda) and there she's wearing a golden dress that covers her elbows. We must bear in mind that it was painted by Carl Ferdinand Sohn (*1805 +1867), who also portrayed members of several other royal houses in Europe, so it's understandable that they all looked a bit similar... at least in their poses.
Other than that, I can only remember this other portrait, but it doesn't seem to be that picture either...

Rádio Voz da Planície 104.5 FM ---- Beja

The town of Beja welcomed, last February 26th-28th, the 8th International Congress on Violets, which counted on the sponsorship of D.ª Isabel de Herédia, the Duchess of Bragança.

The main goals of this event were to develop the culture of this flower in Portugal, to present new species, to consider new techniques against plagues and to encourage scientific studies on violets.

Can you tell me who is the girl next to Infanta Maria Francisca? Does she belong to Dona Isabel's family or is she just a friend?

SAPO Notícias

The Association of the Infante D. Henrique Award, in association with the municipality of Cascais, presented today the 6th Regional EMAS Conference.

The Duke of Bragança, who is the founder of the Infante D. Henrique Award, participated in the ceremony that took place in the Cultural Auditorium of Cascais, and pointed out the importance of such initiative for the cultural and social development of the youth.

This was one of the initiatives that are going to be developed in the scope of The Duke of Edinburgh Award, the international award created 50 years ago, whose ceremony is to take place in Cascais in 2008.

ElsaM.,

This is extraordinary for me to see. For someone such as myself living in a small, mostly anglophone community on Canada's East coast, I don't always receive footage like this through our multicultural channels available on satelite. Thank you so much for posting this. I am truly glad there is something like this award available for our younger generations living in Portugal. It is something very worthy and available for them that gives them aspirations towards a more promising future.

MM

DN Online: D. Duarte processado por 'roubo' de 'patente'


D. Duarte charged for stealing patent

D. Duarte de Bragança is to be investigated by the Ministry of Economy and Innovation, for having presided over a ceremony, in a church of Chiado (Lisbon), where he invested some personalities as knights of the Order of São Miguel da Ala.

The charge was addressed by the leader of the PPM (monarchic party), Nuno da Câmara Pereira, who reserves for himself all the rights of that order, supporting that he was the one to register the insignias of the Order of São Miguel da Ala, back in 1981.

According to the cabinet of D. Duarte de Bragança, this case shall be "treated in proper place". On the history of the divergences between D. Duarte and the leader of PPM, D. Duarte’s cabinet remembers that, "on October 6th, 1984, Nuno da Câmara Pereira was invested as knight of the Order, along with his brother Gonçalo" and "by being invested, he recognized D. Duarte as the Grandmaster of the the Order of São Miguel da Ala".

Pictures but not paintings?... What do you mean?
He lived during the first half of the 19th century... photographs were pratically non-existent by then...

He died in 1866, if I´m not mistaken. There were plenty of photograhps by then.

There are photographs of his nephew, the Emperor of Brazil, Dom Pedro II in 1850, when he was only 25 years old, why not of the old king in exile?

Yes, there were already photos (they came up with the Industrial Revolution), but there weren't as many as that...I'm actually surprised you've seen a photo of D. Pedro in 1850...

As far as I know, we only have photos from D. Carlos (*1863 +1908) onward.
