Queen of Portugal Amélia


Last Queen consort of Portugal, as the monarchy has never been restored. Known to her husband's subjects as "Maria Amélia de Orleães", she was the eldest daughter of Prince Philippe, Count of Paris, and his wife, Princess Marie Isabelle d'Orléans, and therefore a "Princess of Orléans" by birth.

On 22 May 1886, Amélie married Carlos, Prince Royal of Portugal. He was the eldest son of King Luís I of Portugal and Maria Pia of Savoy. He was at the time the heir apparent to the throne.

They had three children: Luís Filipe, Duke of Braganza (21 March 1887 – 1 February 1908), Infanta Maria Anna of Portugal (born and deceased on 14 December 1887), and Manuel II of Portugal (15 November 1889 – 2 July 1932).

On 1 February 1908, Carlos and Luis were assassinated. The next day, Manuel was acclaimed king of Portugal, the last of the Braganza dynasty.

Manuel II of Portugal was deposed by a military coup, later known as the 5 October 1910 revolution, which resulted in the establishment of the Portuguese First Republic.

Amelia died on 25 October 1951, aged 86, in Le Chesnay, France.
