Does anyone have any pictures or other information on Infanta Maria Antonia of Portugal (1903-1973), dau. of Miguel, Duke of Braganza and his second wife Theresa of Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg?

In 1934, she married American Sidney Ashley Chanler, and they were divorced in 1948.

Did she remarry?

The present Duke of Bragança is not only the legal heir of the Miguelist Branch but also the last King of Portugal. Through his mother he is a descendent of King Dom Pedro IV of Portugal earlier known as Emperor Dom Pedro I of Brazil.

In 1920, Dom Miguel resigned his dynastic rights in favour of his only son Dom Duarte Nuno by his wife Dona Theresa, daughter of Carl Prince von Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg.

Two years later, in 1922, The Pact of Paris was signed by the representatives of both already married but heirless King Manuel II and Dom Duarte Nuno which resolved the future Headship of the Royal House of Portugal. The Pact of Paris stated:

It has been declared:

A. by the first signatory (for H.M. King Dom Manuel II) that His August Head in default of a direct heir will accept the successor indicated by the general Cortes of the Portuguese nation.

B. Equally he (H.M. King Dom Manuel II) will accept the resolution of the same Cortes as to the political constitution of the restored Monarchy.

C. With the agreement of the Holy See the religious question will be resolved by means of a diploma which is to be submitted to the Cortes.

By the second Signatory (for H.R.H. Dom Duarte Nuno) it was said before the proceeding Declaration His August Head (H.R.H. Dom Duarte Nuno) would ask and recommend to all His supporters that they would accept as King of Portugal Dom Manuel II, and that they would unite loyally under the same Flag that shelters Monarchists. That is the Flag of the Motherland and that Flag shall save Portugal.


In 1927, Dom Miguel died leaving Dom Duarte Nuno as the male heir of King Miguel I. Five years later, King Manuel II died without issue leaving Dom Duarte Nuno as the legitimate Chief of the Royal House of Bragança.

Dom Duarte Nuno married Princess Dona Maria Francisca of Brazil, the daughter of Dom Pedro Prince of Grão Para, in 1942. This union resulted in the birth of three sons: Dom Duarte Pio João Miguel Gabriel Rafael (the present Duke of Bragança), Dom Miguel Rafael Gabriel Xavier Teresia Maria Felix (the present Duke of Viseu) and Dom Henrique Nuno João Miguel (the present Duke of Coimbra). To conform to the Royal House Laws requiring royal princes to be born on Portuguese soil, all three sons were born inside of the Portuguese Embassy in Switzerland. The Royal Family was invited to return to Portugal in 1950 at the request of the benevolent dictator Antonio de Oliveira Salazar who was President of the Council of Ministers of the National Assembly of the Republic of Portugal (the legislative body which replaced the Cortes).

Dom Duarte Nuno died in 1976 leaving his eldest son Dom Duarte Pio João Miguel Gabriel Rafael de Orleans e Bragança as the Chief of the Royal House of Portugal and the Most Serene House Bragança. His godparents at Baptism were His Holiness Pope Pius XII and Her Majesty Queen Amelia, the widow of King Carlos I and mother of King Manuel II.

The full style and titles of Dom Duarte Pio are: His Royal Highness, the Most Serene Lord, Duke of Bragança, of Guimarães and of Barcelos, Marquis of Vila Viçosa, Count of Arraiolos, of Ourém, of Barcelos, of Faria, of Neiva and of Guimarães, Sovereign of the Royal Order of Saint Isabel, Grand Master of the Order of Our Lady of Conception of Vila Viçosa and Grand Master by Birth of the Order of Saint Michael of the Wing and Judge of the Royal Brotherhood of Saint Michael of the Wing.

No, I am quite sure they are not buried in Portugal.

My guess is that they might be buried either with the Thurn und Taxis or the Loewensteins.

I am also looking for the burial places of D.Miguel II's second son, Infante D. Francisco José who died as PoW in Italy in 1919, and his two half-sisters Infanta D. Mafalda (d. Vienna 1918) and Infanta D. Maria Benedita (d. Seebenstein 1971).

In Dom Miguel I's children we see an interesting phenomenon, which had already happened to his mother Queen Carlota Joaquina...

Carlota Joaquina's older children were rather ugly (Maria Teresa, Maria Isabel, Pedro I-IV, Maria Francisca and Isabel Maria) while the younger were quite handsome (Miguel I, Maria da Assunção and Anna de Jesus Maria)...Maria da Assunção was the prettiest of them all...This led to rumors of a supposed infidelity of their mother...I believe Carlota was not politically loyal  to her husband, but everything else it's nonsense...

Dom Miguel I's children were all handsome...But two youngest (Maria Anna and Maria Antonia) were uglier...

In my opinion Maria José was the most beautiful of them all...'die schönste Frau in Bayern'... :)

I got this answer at the Franco Iberian MBoard:

a. D.Miguel II .......Kloster Mariä Himmelfahrt, Bronnbach, Germany
b. Elizabeth Thurn und Taxis.....Kloster Engelberg near Kleinheubach, Germany
c. Maria Theresa Loewenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg..
Kloster- und Wahlfahrtskirche Hl. Familie, Vienna XIX (Döbling)
(this the the same church to which Empress Zita had the last Bourbons of France transferred to from Castagnevizza in 1917 and where they remained until 1932)
d. Infanta D. Mafalda .........Kloster- und Wahlfahrtskirche Hl. Familie, Vienna XIX (Döbling)
e Infanta D. Maria Benedita......Seebenstein community cemetery
f. Infante D. Francisco José........Kloster Mariä Himmelfahrt, Bronnbach, Germany

One of the tasks a king has is to perpetuate his family and genes and to produce an heir.

King D.Miguel I was effectively THE king of Portugal from 1828-1834.
Yet, I could not find any trace of a marriage prospect during his reign.
And at the time many countries were as conservative as Portugal  ;).
Did the other countries consider his reign a high-risk one and didn't want to "sacrifice" a princess to what eventually happened when he lost his throne  :'(.

As far as I know, the only princess that wanted to marry him  :-* was Ludovika of Bavaria, but her father the king forbade and married her to Duke Max  :(.
(Bavaria wasn't exactly a model of liberal state).
But there were never any deals concerning the marriage.

Did D.Miguel had any feelings for Ludovika ?

I believe that at the time, though on opposite fields of battle, King Miguel I was still legally bonded to marry his niece Queen Maria II...Only after he was defeated the contract was annulled...

But still there is the story that Ludovika wanted to become the Queen of Portugal...
If Miguel had remained on the throne I believe he would have not married Maria anyway...Which geneticaly would have been (and was) a good thing...

I read (but in which book? ???) that Ludovica and Miguel met in Vienna, where the Princess and her mother Queen Caroline visited Sophie, Archduchess of Austria.
As soon as it was possible, Miguel sent a minister or somebody like that to Munich in order to ask for permission to marry Ludovica. But she has been already engaged to Max - we know the rest of the story.

But I think it was a stroke of fate that Miguel's daughter Marie José married Ludovica's son Carl Theodor.
