Source Notes

Originally this entry had 9:15 AM (rated B) with Sy Scholfield quoting from the book, "Bibliographia historica portugueza : ou Catalogo methodico dos auctores portuguezes..." by Jorge cesar de Figaniere (Na typographia do Panorama, 1850), p. 124: "nascido a 16 de Março de 1842, pelas nove horas e um quarto da manhã, no Real Paço das Necessidades."

On 8 January 2017, Scholfield changed the time to 8:30am (rated A), having forwarded a news report from "Wiener Zeitung," 6 April 1842, p. 1: "Ueber Madrid ist die Nachricht aus Lissabon eingelausen, daß die Königinn Donna Maria da Gloria am 16. März um halb 9 Uhr Vormittags von einem gesunden Prinzen glücklich entbunden worden ist." (Concerning Madrid the news came from Lisbon, that the Queen Donna Maria da Gloria, on 16 March, was happily delivered of a healthy prince at half-before-nine o'clock [8:30] in the morning).
