Well we are certainly agreed on that Carminha.... Not only has he strange ideas, his writing is unpunctuated and very very difficult to understand. Besides, in my personal opinion, terribly terribly boring.

To go back to the priest, I wonder if he was the olden days equivalent of Brad Pitt or George Clooney (looks I mean).

The Galizians and the Portuguese from Minho have also a very similiar personality.

I second that! IMO, his books are just like his personality: boring, confusing, and unfruitful.

I consider Beira Alta as centro. And everything above Oporto as North (Norte). Map

haha! Well, I think that if Brad or Clooney had lived in that period of time, jealousy would had killed them!

Does anyone knows why D. Afonso has the title Príncipe da Beira (Prince of Beira)? D. Duarte has the same title and he uses it often. Do they share the title?

Pics of D. Afonso attending several events with his father

I don't know if these pictures were already posted. (I hope not. If they did, please delete them).

From what I understand, and I also remember reading somewhere D. Duarte saying that his son, not him was principe da beira since he is the heir. D. Duarte was principe da beira up to the birth of D. Afonso. When you see in reports D. Duarte being refered to as principe da beira I think its the reporter that doesnt know the diffrence.

Hey Regina!!! We are next to Moimenta da Beira and my husband was born in Sernancelhe (some people say that Marques de Pombal was too, but even if that is not true the family house is still there and he (Pombal) must have been there often). The map says NORTH.....(admittedly JUST north).....
How on earth do you put smileys on a reply if you are not quoting? Help?

At this point Regina imagine a big bunch of smiley flowers.....

Several Presidents of USA, including George Bush (father & son) are descendents of D. Afonso Henriques, the first King of Portugal.

Click here
Those Presidents who have the red circle are descendents of William I of England.

One King William's descendents, King Edward I, married Leonor of Castilla who was a descendent of D. Urraca of Portugal (daughter of King D. Afonso Henriques).
I couldn't find Sarah Palin in GeneAll.net

Does anyone know something about her ancestry? Maybe she's related with Portuguese royalty too...

D. Henrique and his girlfriend organized a common birthday party.
Isabel Nogueira celebrated her birthday on November 5th and shared her cake with the Duke of Coimbra, who turned 59 years old on November 6th.

I thought I recognised him, so hence I wondered, as I thought he wouldn't be too happy with Mrs. Nogueira either. Are the brothers still on speaking terms with Dom Duarte btw, as he does not seem to be overly exited with Isabel Nogueira as the partner of his brother?

Her dress is so awful, IMO. He seems to like her, anyway.
Does anyone knows the names of the ex-girlfriends of D. Henrique?

Does Isabel Nogueira have children?

D. Henrique and Isabel Nogueira were among those who paid 500 € (each) to celebrate the Réveillon at Casino Estoril.

Curiously enough, the photos where he appears get his name wrong (both captions say he's another person: Pedro Campos Henriques )
