Pages: [1] 2 3 ... 9

Here's a photo with their wedguests. The picture had been posted at some other historical forum,sorry I don't remember where exactly.

I have this I.D. list :

 Behind the bride and groom we have Prince René and Princess Margrethe of Bourbon-Parma - sitting between the bride's parents Countess Christina and Count Josef Holstein-Ledreborg.
The elegant lady to the extreme right is Cr Pss Märtha of Norway - and next to her it's the groom's younger siblings, Princess Anne and Prince Michel of Bourbon-Parma.
The man standing behind Anne of Bourbon-Parma is wearing the uniform of a Danish chamberlain. Don't know his name, but probably a noble landowner.
Behind him - in a light dress - we see Princess Margaretha of Denmark. Her husband and youngest son, Prince Axel and Prince Flemming, are seen to the right of her.
Behind the bride's mother there is a woman with a big hat...perhaps Princess Luise of Prussia (b. 1917).The uniformed man next to her is Prince Viggo of Denmark.
Behind Prince Viggo it's Princess Aage of Denmark, Prince George of Greece, Princess Ingeborg of Sweden, the priest, and Princess Viggo of Denmark.
Behind Pss Aage: Pss Elisabeth of Luxembourg, Pss M-Adelaïde of Luxembourg, maybe Pss Isabelle of B-Parma (dau of Sixtus), Hereditary Gr Duke Jean of Luxembourg, probably Count Carl Holstein-Ledreborg (brother of the bride), probably Pr André of B-Parma (brother of the groom), Pr Georg of Denmark, and Cr Pr Olav of Norway.
In the white circle: Grand Duchess Olga of Russia (she is singled out because the photo was printed with an article about the grand duchess).
To the right of Olga: Prince Erik of Denmark, and behind him Prince Xavier of Bourbon-Parma.
In the back row, far left: Probably Count Valdemar of Rosenborg and Count Knud Holstein-Ledreborg (brother of the bride).

There is this book of Malcolm Howe: The Braganza Story. But I couldn´t find it in the web. Maybe you have more luck:)

Here it is:

If you are interested mainly in photos you woukld appreciate 
"A Descendência de El-Rei D.João VI".ência_d'El-Rei_Dom_João_VI

It traces the King's descendants up to the 1930/40.

And of course there are Eduardo Nobre's books "Família Real" and "Casa Real", and "Paixões Reais I and II" .

From Paula Lourenço, Ana Cristina Pereira and Joana Troni "Amantes dos Reis de Portugal" - (The Kings of Portugal Mistresses).
Traces the mistresses of the kings of Portugal from the very first D.Afonso Henriques to the last one D.Manuel II.

There is also this collection of all the kings of Portugal.

And since last year we had the sad 100th anniversary of D.Carlos’ regicide, there were at least a dozen books on him.


Unfortunately, apart from The Braganza Story, all the others are only in Portuguese...

You can check many more at this site

Mind you that Guarda-Mor is slightly more expensive than most bookshops. I mentioned it because it is easier to find them all together.
Older books can be found at “Alfarrabistras”, the famous 2nd hand bookstores.

I've been searching everywhere and asking in different boards for ages.

Apparently the count was alergyc to photos :-)

It was converted into apartments.

I once had a look from the gates.

Wonder if Sisi's ghost haunts the place :-)

"One more thing: if the influence of PA was so important to Peter V, I wonder why outside of Portugal that matter isn't that much discussed..."

Maybe because, apart from the Discoveries period,not much of the portuguese history is discussed outside ...

That's great news, but ... the article is from 2008 and since then nothing changed.

You should call the secretaria of the F.Office. I am told she is a very nice lady that would do all she can to help you.

As I said, I visited on a day it was exceptionally opened to the public and had a grand tour of the palace.


There aren't many of us in this forum.

You probably know this book:

As to the Necessidades Palace, I nvere heard it would open to the public.

I know that private tours can be arranged via the Secretaria of the Palace.

I visited it last year on the Museum's Day, when it was, unexpectedly, open.

Wonderful. A shame it is closed to the public...

Adelgundes and Enrico never had any children (she is the only one of her siblings not to have had any children of her own).

Infanta D.Maria das Neves and Infante Alfonso Carlos de Borbon didn't have any children either.

There is this book "Correspondência entre D.Pedro V e o seu tio o Príncipe Alberto" where D.Pedro asks advices to Pr.Alberto and keeps aware of the portuguese situation and his disbelief in the portuguese politicians.

Nothing changed that much in 150 years sadly :-(

Channel History (Portugal) will ran a piece on D.Manuel II this wednesday-

It has been aired several times so far...
