The Palaces are museums now. Rio de Janeiro is no longer the capital of Brazil.

The President lives in Brasília (the capital), in a horrible "modern" palace - http://www.yourwonder.com/photos/F6F709E971F0151D.jpg

Prince Luiz, the Head of the Imperial Family, lives in a rented house in São Paulo, with his brother and heir, Prince Bertrand, Prince Imperial of Brazil.

The Palace of Guanabara (the original name was Isabel Palace) was a personal property of Princess Isabel and her husband, the Count of Eu. The Republic stole the Palace.

The Imperial Family is still suing the Government (Princess Isabel appealed in court for the first time in 1891), in order to retrieve the Palace.

Prince Alberto of Orleans-Braganza, younger brother of Prince Luiz, the Head of the Imperial House, who is one of the best lawyers of Brazil,is in charge of the case.

I think someone in the forum already said that the Palacio do Grão-Pará (or Grão-Pará Palace) is the home of Dom Pedro Carlos de Orléans e Bragança e Bourbon, one of the pretendors of the throne. The last time I was in Petropolis, I was told that he is also the owner of the Princess' Isabel House.

The President does have a house in Petropolis but never goes there. The place is called Palácio Rio Negro and it belonged to the baron of Rio Negro. It is located in a beautiful avenue where everyone that had money and title built there mansions so that when the emperor went to Petropolis, they could also go there and be near him. (Princess' Isabel House is in the end of this avenue). Here is a picture of the Palácio Rio Negro:

The baron also built a smaller house next to the original one for his son (the picture is small but you can see them both)

Dom Pedro II visited the United States in 1876 to join President Grant at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition.
Pedro met Alexander Graham Bell at the exposition.
Dom Pedro II was the first person to buy stock in the Bell Telephone Company.
One of the first telephones in a private residence was installed in the Emperor's Palace in Petropolis.
