Catherine of Portugal, Duchess of Braganza (1540-1614)
« on: May 01, 2006, 03:40:00 PM »
Hello  :)

I would like to know more about Dona Catarina de Portugal, the wife of  João, 6th Duke of Bragança, and grand-mother of King John IV...

Does anyone have any portrait of her...I've never seen one...

Thank you in advance

I have portraits of both her father d. Duarte and her mother Isabel, but I cannot find a portrait of duchess Catarina. She seems to me very elusive ;)

Catarina's father died very young. Was he ill or he had some kind of accident?

Oh, I've found this on wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine%2C_Duchess_of_Braganza

Without her portrait, I'm afraid. :-?
