Manõel of Portugal, II
Birth: Mar. 19, 1889
Death: Jul. 2, 1932

King of Portugal 1908-1910. Manõel II reigned as the last king of Portugal, following the assasinations of his father, king Carlos I and his elder brother, Crownprince Luìs Filipe. The young king tried to save the fragile position of the Braganza-monarchy by dismissing the dictator João Franco and his entire cabinet in 1908. Free elections were declared and republicans and socialists won an overwhelming victory. Revolution erupted on Oct. 10, 1910 and Manõel II fled to England with the royal family as his palace was being shelled. He lived in exile in the United Kingdom. On Sept. 4, 1913 he married Augusta Viktoria, Princess of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (1890-1966). Following his death, the seniority of the Royal House of Portugal was transferred to his distant cousin Miguel II, Duke of Braganza. Royalist movements in Portugal subsequent to 1910 have failed to restore the Braganza dynasty.
