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.

In the last photo, Infante D.Miguel with his nephews and niece

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

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.

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 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.

And a bio on Queen D.Maria Pia by Sabrina Pollock was published last year.

Oddly, it was not yet translated to portuguese, nor have I seen it on sale in any portuguese bookshop.

Has someone bought/read the book ?

Is there a (photo-)book about King Miguel of Portugal, Queen-in-exile Adelheid and their Family?

I adore the Infantas Marie Therese (Archduchess of Austria) and Marie Jose (Duchess in Bavaria)

You posted a year ago but may be you still visit this site.

Bearing in mind you adore Infantas Maria Teresa and Maria José I recommend Das Familien Album von Kaiser Karl und Kaiserin Zita.

Its is only in German but has a lot of photos of the Bragança sisters as they related to the Habsburg Imperial family.

Are there any special meanings behind the names (besides the Rainier part)?

Jacques is probably in honour of Jacques I of Monaco, the first Prince of the Goyon-Matignon dynasty (which ruled before the current Polignac dynasty). His son was Honoré III, so there have been several (five actually) princes called Honoré. And of course Grace Kelly's father John Kelly was nicknamed Jack!

Gabriella is perhaps in honour of Duchesse Gabrielle de Polignac, famous friend of Marie-Antoinette and a direct ancestress of Prince Albert II through his Polignac paternal grandfather.

According to Diana Nigra, Gabriella's god-mother, Thérèse comes after her grand-mother Pss Thérèse de Polignac (1916-2014) oo Pedro de Assis Mascarenhas de Barros.

Im an interview, she said that Pr.Albert was extremely fond of his cousin Pss Thérèse and decided to pay hommage to her by naming his daughter.

Last year the french celebrated the 300th of Louis XIV's death.

Those jubilees many times are associated with the publications of works on the subject.

Were there any new books oh him and his time?

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

The marriage between Carlso de Borbon and Margherita de Bourbon-Parma was a rather sad one.

Being an arraged marriage, as always, Carlos neglected his wife who suffered bitterly.

She was consoled by her brothers Roberto and Enrico count of Bardi and their wives Infantas D.Maria Antonia and Aldegundes of Braganza.

During the years Carlos stayed away Margherita lived in Viareggio, the seaside palace of the BP, where she was buried.

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

Scroll down for photos of the family and the bride and groom
