Still no replies ?

If The Braganzas were not such a catholic family, I would bet D,Miguel and D.Henrique were not baptized  ;D   :-[

TRH the Duke and Duchess of Braganza attended the wedding of Prínce Franz Clemens d’Altenburg with Countess Eleonore de Toerring-Jettenbach in Andechs this summer.

They were accompannied by their elder children the Prince of Beira and Infanta D.Maria Francisca who turned to be a lovely young woman.

The bride and groom are cousins since Franz Clemens descends from Emperess Elisabeth (Sissi) and Eleonore descends from Sissi's brother Carl-Theodore duke in Bavaria and his wife Infanta D.Maria José de Bragança

Back to the visit of D.Miguel II and the Count and Countess of Bardi to Portugal, there is a rather comprehensive passage on the book

"As lágrimas da Princesa" by Maria João Fialho Gouveia

I'm trying to research Princess Nadejda (Nada) de Braganza -
 
Sufficiently famous in 1935 to be featured in a UK advertising campaign. She had a book of poetry published in Paris, was married twice, apparently has a bust on display in the Pompidou Centre and her mother Anita was one of the wealthiest titled ladies in America. There are references to Nada's 1946 tragic death falling from a London Hotel but I can find no obituary or newspaper report on her. She had a son by her first husband and was presumably still married to Rene Millet.

Is her overall story and circumstances at the end known? Any clarification gratefully received.

The Duke and Duchess of Braganza, accompannied by their 3 children, attended the wedding of Maria Theresa Martorell Salgado to Nuno Amaral de Freitas.

Maria Thereza is the daughter of Elizabeth d'Orléans-Bragança Martorell and grand daughter of the late Pss Thereza d'Orléabs-Bragança, sister of the Countess of Paris and the Duchess of Bragança.

Her father is Elizabeth's first husband João Espírito Santo Salgado, the younger brother of the former all-mighty banker Ricardo Espírito Santo Salgado.

The wedding took place at the Espírito Santo family private chapel in Cascais.

Among the guests was Pss Hélène of France who can be seen on pic 2 talking to Infante D.Miguel duke of Viseu.

On the 4th row, behind a tall man, one can see the Duke and Duchess of Bragança.

Diana duchess of Cadaval also attended with husband Charles-Philippe Duke of Anjou and little Pss Isabelle.

On pic. 4, Maria Thereza with her father and half-sister Maria do Carmo Martorell Calém acting as bridesmaid.

Can someone help in my search ?

I want to know where (city) were baptized the 2 Infantes sons of the late Duke and Duchess of Braganza D.Duarte Nno and D.Maria Francisca.

And who were the godparents.

D.Duarte Pio's godparents are known: Pope Pius XII and Queen Amélia of Portugal.
However, sometimes a 3rd godparent appears: Pss Adelgonde of Liechtenstein.

But I cannot trace D.Miguel and D.Henrique's godparents.

Due to the friedship between D.Maria Francisca and her sister, the countess of Paris was a possibility.
D.Duarte was very fond of her 2 younger sisters, Infantas D.Filipa and D.Maria Adelaide.
Maybe some austro-german relatives: Liechtenstein, Wittelsbachs, Habsburgs or Thurn und Taxis ?


Still looking forward for any reply on the Infantes god-parents

Thanks in advance

The Duke of Bragança's sercretariat issued the following statement:

http://realbeiralitoral.blogspot.pt/

The Duke of Bragança's secretariat announces with the deepest regret the death of HH D.Henrique de Bragança, Infante of Portugal and Duke of Coimbra on February the 14th 2017

His urn will arrive at São Vicente de Fora thursday 16.02 followed by a mass at 19.30

On Friday there will be another mass at 10.00 and the corteje will leave for Santar where the Infante will be buried.

According to "O Observador" D.Henrique suffered from cancer .
This source doesn't say where the Prince died but he was in coma in a hospital after a bad fall at home where he suffered a traumatic brain injury.

What a sad end.

My condolences to the RF especially to HRH The Duke of Bragança.

Pictures from yesterday at São Vicente de Fora.

The Duke of Bragança looks extremely shaken by his brother's death.

Infantes D.Diniz and D.Maria Francisca took active part in the readings.
