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.
