Actually Queen Maria Barbara's passion for music could have been increased by her mother...but music it's the Bragança's passion, almost every single Bragança till the begining of XIX century played a musical instrument and composed music...

The first one of the Braganças that I know to have this passion was the father of King John IV: Theodosius II, 7. Duke of Bragança...his son the King was a workaholic after he became sovereign, but music continued to be his hobby...

It seems many royal musical compositions were lost during the Lisbon Earthquacke of 1755...Helas...

The tradition was continued by Queen D.Maria I and her sisters, D.Pedro IV (I of Brazil) and D.Luis.

And Infante D.Francisco José (D.Miguel II's son) composed a wedding march when his aunt Infanta D. Maria Ana married G.D. Guillaume of Luxembourg.

I think that Mariana Victoria of Spain, Queen of Portugal, was really loved by her elder brother, Carlos, king Carlos III. After the death of her husband, as Queen Mother, she traveled to Spain to met Carlos. This was their first meeting after almost fifty years of distance. She was really touched and remained in Spain for ONE YEAR. When she returned to Portugal, she had not a good health and she died soon.

Mariana Victoria left an extensive correspondence to her spanish family, namely to her mother.
Despite not always very objective, it gives a very comprehensive picture of life in Portugal and at the court during her reign.
She was not very fond of Pombal, the powerful, PM whom she suspected provided some of the King's mistresses in order to gain influence over him.
When the King was shot, she was kept away from him and for a long time she believed what she was told, that the king fell down some stairs. She wrote it to her mother.
She was appalled when she finally knew what had happened.

She had a strong character indeed!  :)

The first thing she did after becoming queen was to complain about the many expenses of king John V, her husband's father. Then she had a successful regency and planed several weddings between the Portuguese and Spanish royal houses. I'd say she was one of the most charismatic queens Portugal ever had!

He soon fell in love with young Inés and he made her his mistress. Constanza, desperate for her husband's love, asked the couple a favour when she gave birth to her first son, Luis. They were to  be the godparents of the child and, for some reason, this barred them from ever having carnal contact. But, however, the baby died and Pedro and Inés could become lovers again.

Inés de Castro
I know this is an old post but I have read that Constanza did this because it made Ines (from the moment She became a Godparent) part of the Family. In that Century it meant incest to then have a relationship. Very shrewd of her! I also read Constanza was a very jealous Woman.
However the Baby soon died and as already stated it then was not a problem.

Also she was called heron neck which sounds awful but during that era it was a sign of beauty. Harold's Mistress, some centuries earlier, who was considered to be so beautiful was granted permission by William the Conqueror to go on the battlefield and look for his dead body was called the Swan neck!

The figure on the tomb looks more beautiful than the Drawing of her. I wonder if anyone knows what coloring She had
