Can anyone find pictures of Manuel II when he was either a child or an infant?

I wonder if there is any signifigant reason why Manoel's hair was left grown out so long as a boy. His look seems quite unique, even in an age where longer hair on little boys was common place.

I see there only one reason  : )  - his mother wanted him to be a daughter.

For what i ve seen in pictures, that was pretty common. Nicolae of Romania also had long hair when he was a toddler.

But Manoel is not a toddler in the picture above. He really had such hair long enough in his childhood.

how old was he in that picture? 10?. Nicolae had a a kind o "bob haircut" when he was like eight, Archduke Otto, son of Karl and Zita also had long hair and he wasnt a toddler. Im not telling that you said wasnt true, but he was a weird "fashionable" haircut for boys back in those days.

And his brother Luis had very short hair. It was quite the juxtaposition.

Well of course we realize that. I was suggesting and sveta agreeing that Manoel's was unusually long and kept so for a longer period of time than many boys. He dad long hair till at least the age of 9. He is

and, like ella noted, luiz's hair was cut very different.

Does anyone have a picture of her second spouse, Robert Douglas (1880-1955)?
