Queen of Portugal Maria II (c. 1850)


Queen regnant of the Kingdom of Portugal and the Algarves from 1826 to 1828 and again from 1834 to 1853. She was known as "the Educator" (Portuguese: "a Educadora") or "the Good Mother" (Portuguese: "a Boa Mãe").

Maria was the daughter of the future King of Portugal and first Emperor of Brazil, Pedro IV and I and his first wife Maria Leopoldina, Archduchess of Austria, herself a daughter of Emperor Francis II. Maria is the only European monarch to have been born outside Europe, though she was born in Portuguese territory.

On 26 January 1835, Maria married, at the age of fifteen, Auguste, Duke of Leuchtenberg, son of Eugène de Beauharnais, and grandson of Empress Josephine. However, he died only two months later on 28 March 1835. On 1 January 1836, she married Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Maria died in Lisbon 15 November 1853 aged 34, while giving birth to their eleventh child, Princess Anna, who also died.
