Nope, Infante D. Miguel was 64 last December ;-) .

D.Duarte, duke of Bragança, was 65 on May 15th.
A 21 year gap to his wife born 22.11.1966

Why claimed Manuel the title "Duke de Viseu" for himself? Miguel II. gave this title for his son Miguel after the wedding with Anita Stewart. One other question, was she the Duchesse of Vizeu?

wedding of Miguel and Anita

I didn´t realized that the woman on the right is Sophie Toerring-Jettenbach. I didn´t know that Sophie and Miguel were so close, that she went to his wedding in Scotland. Or was she the official member for the Bavarian family??

Are there any more pictures of Miguel I. wife, Adelheid Löwenstein - Wertheim  - Rochefort? She was a pretty lady in my opinion. I saw a picture of her in 'Sisi's Fürstenalbum'.

I read a small amount of material about Princess Adelaide of Loewenstein's mother in Letters of Feodora, Princess of Hohenlohe-Langenburg from 1828 to 1827:

Agnes Princess of Loewenstein nee Hohenlohe-Langenburg, died of a fever more than a week after childbirth with "complete presence of mind."  Feodora described her as "very handsome" and amiable.  Constantin Prince of Loewenstein spoke to Feodora about his sadness about the loss of his wife.

This Monday Jan.31, Infanta D.Maria Adelaide celebrated her 99th birthday.

It is amazing to realize that she is "just" the gr.grand-daughter of King D. Joăo VI (1767-1826) who had to fled to Brazil when napoleonic troops invaded Portugal !

And that her cousin in the same degree was D.Pedro V.


D.Joăo VI --- D.Pedro IV ---  D.Maria II ---- D.Pedro V (1837-61)

D.Joăo VI ---  D.Miguel I ---  D.Miguel II --- D.Maria Adelaide (1912-...)

Some articles and photos of the Infanta:

Infanta D. Maria Adelaide celebrates today her 100th birthday.
She is the first Portuguese royal to reach this age, being also the only living grand-daughter of a Portuguese king alive.

This King was of course D.Miguel I, born in 1802, 210 years ago !

The Infanta will receive the Order of Civil Merit by the President of the Republic, for her humanitarian action, in a banquet tonight.

She founded Nun’Álvares Pereira Foundation, dedicated to the more needed, and devoted her life to their help .

The President, for once, had an intelligent gesture, granting her the Order of Merit.

In a note to the Portuguese press agency, he underlined the example of her moral statute, considering her one of the more relevant Portuguese alive.

You don´t have to be front cover on the papers to act as she did.

Several articles:

Wow, nice, quite the feat! Always comforting to have a link back through time from the living themselves!
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

This is very interesting. The lady must also be the oldest-ever person born into royalty.

I hope she is in good health.
