Prince Consort of Portugal Auguste de Beauharnais (circa 1835)


Portuguese royal consort as the first husband of Maria II of Portugal. Besides being styled the 2nd Duke of Leuchtenberg (from 14 November 1817) and 2nd Prince of Eichstätt, he also held the Brazilian noble title of Duke of Santa Cruz (from 5 November 1829).

Auguste was the eldest son of Eugène de Beauharnais, Napoleon I's stepson, and Princess Augusta of Bavaria. His dynastic connections were exceptional, considering his paternal lineage: among his sisters were Joséphine, Queen consort of Oscar I of Sweden, and Amélie, Empress consort of his future father-in-law Pedro I of Brazil. Later, his brother Maximilian would wed Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia, eldest daughter of Tsar Nikolai I.

Auguste married Maria II by proxy in Munich on 1 December 1834. The groom was almost twenty-four years old and the bride only fifteen years old. They were wed in person in Lisbon on 26 January 1835. However Auguste fell ill and died childless only two months later on 28 March 1835, aged 24.
