YES YOU ARE RIGHT .. NETHERLANDS.. .. AND AMALIA WAS ENGLISH.. AND I SEE THE CONNECTION TO THE ROYAL ORDER OF THE GARTER IN THE PIC YOU JUSTPOSTED.. THANKS..
ALSO I JUST FOUND THIS INFO .. WHICH WAS INTERESTING.....
CARLOS I. (1863-1908), king of Portugal, the third sovereign of Portugal of th~ line of Braganza-Coburg, son of King Louis I. and Maria Pia, daughter of King Victor Emmanuel of Italy, was born on the 28th of September 1863. When about twenty years of age he spent a considerable time in. travelling, visiting England in 1883. On the 22nd of May 1886 he married Marie Amlie, daughter of Philippe, duc dOrlans, comte de Paris, and on the death of his father (I9th of October 1889) he succeeded to the throne of Portugal. In that year the British government found it necessary to make formal remonstrances against Portuguese encroachments in South Africa, and relations between. the two countries were greatly strained for some time. The kings attitude during this critical period was one of conciliation, and his temperate, though firm, speech on opening the Cortes in. January 1890 did much to strengthen the party of peace. In 1900-1901 also his friendly attitude towards Great Britain was shown by cordial toasts at a banquet to the officers of the British fleet at Lisbon. King Carlos distinguished himself as a patron of science and literature, and was himself an artist of some repute. In March 1894 he took a very active part in the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of Prince Henry the Navigator, and a year later he decorated the Portuguese poet, Joao de Deus, with much honor at Lisbon. He took a great personal interest in deep-sea soundings and marine exploration, and published an account of some of his own investigations, the results themselves being shown at an oceanographic exhibition opened by him on the 12th of April 1897. In May 1907 the king suspended the constitution of Portugal and temporarily appointed Senhor Franco as dictator with a view to carrying out certain necessary reforms. Some discontent was aroused by this proceeding; this was increased by Francos drastic measures, and on the 1st of February 1908 King Carlos and his elder son, Louis, duke of Braganza (1887-1908), were assassinated whilst driving through the streets of Lisbon. The king was succeeded by his only surviving son, Manuel, duke of Beja (b. 1889), who took the title of Manuel II.

THANK YOU....

Bragança is the name of the royal house that ruled Portugal from 1640 to 1910.

"Henry of Burgundy (died 1112), 2nd surviving son of Henry, 2nd Duke of Burgundy (died 1071), a member of the Royal House of France, established himself as ruler of a substantial portion of modern Portugal, with the title Count, circa 1093, and was father of Alfonso I (died 1185), who assumed the title King of Portugal ca 1139. The last King of his legitimate male line was Ferdinand I, King of Portugal (born 1345, succeeded 1367, died 1383), whose bequest of the throne to his only daughter, Beatrice, married to King John I of Castille, was resisted by Ferdinand’s illegitimate half-brother, John, Grand Master of the Order of St Benedict of Aviz, who was elected King in her place 1385.

The House of Aviz, as John’s descendants became, was extinguished in the legitimate male line with the death of Henry I, Cardinal King in 1580, when the throne was assumed by his nephew, Philip II King of Spain. The present line was founded by Alfonso I (died 1461), natural son of John (João) I (of Aviz), King of Portugal (born 1357; died 14 Aug 1433), created Duke of Bragança 30 Dec 1442, Guimarães 23 Nov 1470, & Barcelos 5 Aug 1562, etc. John IV, Duke of Braganza, etc (1604-1656) became King of Portugal and of Brazil following the heroic campaign which led to the expulsion of the Spanish 1 Dec 1640. King John VI (born 13 May 1767; died 10 Mar 1826) and his wife Infanta Carlotta Joaquína of Spain (born 25 Apr 1775; married 9 Jan 1790; died 7 Jan 1830), left two sons, the elder (1) Pedro IV King of Portugal (born 11 Oct 1798; died 24 Sep 1834) was proclaimed Emperor of Brazil 12 Oct 1822 as Pedro I, and renounced the throne of Portugal 2 May 1826 in favour of his daughter Maria II da Gloria (born 4 Apr 1819; died 15 Nov 1853) who reigned 1826-28 and 1834-53. She married 1stly (with Papal dispensation) by proxy 29 Oct 1826, her uncle Dom Miguel, Infant of Portugal (on condition he swore to uphold the Charter of 29 Apr 1826, which he did on 4 Oct 1826), but this marriage was annulled by the Cardinal Patriarch of the Indies, Archbishop of Lisbon, 1 Dec 1834; she married 2ndly (by proxy 5 Nov 1834) 26 Jan 1835 Duke August of Leuchtenberg, but following his premature death 28 Mar 1835, she married 3rdly (by proxy 1 Jan 1836) 9 Apr 1836 Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and had by him twelve children. She was succeeded by her eldest son, Pedro V (born 16 Sep 1837; died 11 Nov 1861 without issue), who succeeded under the regency of his father 15 Nov 1853, and was in turn succeeded by his next brother Luis I (born 31 Oct 1838; 19 Oct 1889), who had two sons by his wife Princess Maria Pia of Savoy, daughter of King Victor Emmanuel II of Italy. The eldest, Carlos I (b 28 Sep 1863; assassinated 1 Feb 1908) succeeded his father 1889, while the younger Infant Dom Alfonso, Duke of Porto, died in exile in Naples 21 Feb 1920 (without issue by his morganatic wife). The Crown Prince, Dom Luis, having been assassinated with his father, the 18 year old Infant Dom Manoel was proclaimed King 1 Feb 1908 as Manoel II (born 15 Nov 1889; died 2 Jul 1932), but was forced to leave the country during the revolution, 5 Oct 1910 (the dynasty was declared deposed and permanently exiled 15 Oct 1910), and died without issue.

King John’s yr son, (2) Infante Miguel, Duke of Bragança (born 26 Oct 1802; died 14 Nov 1866), was King of Portugal as Miguel I from 30 Jun 1828 to 26 May 1834, but he and his descendants were deprived of their rights and expelled from the throne 19 Dec 1834. Both exile laws were repealed 17 May 1950. Miguel continued to claim the throne in exile in Austria, and following his death his claims were maintained by his son Miguel (II), Duke of Braganza (see below). On 17 Apr 1922 at Paris the representatives of King Manoel II signed an agreement with the Infanta Aldegonda (born 10 Nov 1858; died 15 Apr 1946, dau of Miguel I, King of Portugal) by which Duarte, Prince of Beira (later Duke of Braganza) would inherit the claim on the death of the childless King Manoel and unite the differing Monarchist factions.

The House of Bragança have had a long connection with the United States. However, one branch of the family which included some Americans no longer have a claim to the throne were it to be a ruling family. Here's a photo from 1929 which was taken at Newport, Rhode Island home to some of America's largest and most opulent mansions and a nice place to do some sailing:
