Pedro of Portugal, V
Birth: Aug. 16, 1837
Death: Nov. 11, 1861

King of Portugal 1853-1861. He was the oldest son of queen Maria II da Glória and her king-consort Fernão II von Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha. Pedro V was an unusually conscientious and hard-working monarch who, under the guidance of his father, sought radical modernisation of the Portuguese state and infrastructure. Under his reign roads, telegraphs and railways were constructed and improvements in public health advanced.However, this was unable to save the life of the young king, who died from cholera in 1861. He was married to Stephanie, Princess von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, but had no successors. Therefore the throne was passed on to his younger brother, Luís I.  (bio by: Benny Chordt Hansen)
