Manuel was definitely one of the best looking monarchs during his "twens" in the last 100, 150 years. For me he was similarly charismatic like the young King Constantine II/ Greece!

D. Manuel II, O Último Rei de Portugal, Ricardo Mateos Sainz De Medrano - WOOK
Does anyone know how I can contact the author Ricardo Mateos Sainz de Medrano?

I would appreciate this information.

Many thanks

Manuel II wore not only uniforms but also frock coats.

Guided by Anthony Bailey, move on the Centenary Appeal, which will pay tribute to the Portuguese soldiers killed in World War I, as well as erecting a statue of King Manuel II in Twickenham, where he lived in exile.
Why Mr. Dom Duarte, Duke of Braganza, is the patron of this organisation:

In my capacity as Chairman of the Portuguese Centenary Appeal I called on Lord True, Leader of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames at the Town Hall in Twickenham a few days ago.

Discussions were held concerning the recently launched Portuguese Centenary Appeal and the prospect of future events and projects aimed at promoting both national ties between Britain and Portugal as well as civic ties between Sintra and Richmond upon Thames.

The Appeal seeks funds to create the first war memorial in Britain to the Portuguese War dead of WW1; to erect a statue to Portugal's last King and longtime local resident Dom Manuel II and to restore St James's Church in Twickenham where he prayed. I delivered too a letter to Lord True from the Mayor of Sintra, Dr Basilio Horta.

The current Town Hall, York House in Twickenham was where Queen consort Maria Amelia of Portugal was born in 1895. Born a Princess of Orleans she later married King Carlos I of Portugal and was the mother of King Manuel II - Portugal's last King who, on the declaration of the Republic in 1910, lived in exile in Twickenham from 1911 until his untimely death in 1932 and his subsequent return to Lisbon where he was accorded a State Funeral. Councillor Clare Head also attended the meeting.

For more information and ways to support this appeal please visit Home - Portuguese Centenary AppealPortuguese Centenary Appeal

Victoria Princess of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (19 Aug 1890-29 Aug 1966) was a daughter of Wilhelm Prince of Hohenzollern (1864-1927) and his first wife Princess Maria Teresa of Bourbon-Two Sicilies. Wilhelm was a son of Prince Leopold and Infanta Antonia of Portugal. Maria Teresa was a daughter of Francis II of the Two Sicilies and Sophia of Bavaria younger sister of Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary.

Blog Real, It is an honor to hear that you are pleased with the video about the Proclamation of King Manuel II. It is most unfortunate how he lost both his father and older brother, Crown Prince Luis. Do you believe that if the republic had not occurred, Manuel II would have had a successful reign? Also, who would he have named as the heir to the throne?

Could the throne have passed to the Orléans-Braganza ? That would be the natural solution from a genealogical point of view.
