In English
The Imperial House of Brazil reigned in Brazil since 1822, when Emperor Pedro II proclaimed the independence of Portugal, until 1889, when the Republic was established.The current heirs to the throne of Brazil extinct are the great grandchildren of Pedro II, who now dedicate their lives to campaign for a return to the monarchy.

Prince Don Bertrand believes that Brazil today is "a disaster" because of the Republic and discontent manifested most Brazilians make them see that the solution is the monarchy. "It is said that in Brazil there is a monarchist Republican all sleeping, and the republic, with all its disasters, is awakening."


Prince Bertrand is the younger brother of Don Luiz I, the direct heir to the throne. The two are part of 'Tradition, Family and Property "(TFP), a Catholic organization, traditionalist and conservative. Contrary to what happens with most monarchs who act as heads of state, princes Brazilians do not hide their political preferences, rather the contrary.

"The monarchy is required to position itself, can not allow, for example, that in our country there is a systematic murder of children," he said, referring to abortion. Convinced that the Brazilians are looking for a new ideological direction, the conservative positions of Prince Bertrand also come to the theories of climate change deniers: "That that the poles are melting is a big lie, it has no basis."

The prince has driven the 'Peace not field' project, which aims to give greater legal certainty to Brazilian farmers. He believes that the agricultural and livestock sector is a pillar of the Brazilian economy is being threatened by environmental movements. In this regard, he criticized Marina Silva, candidate of the Brazilian Socialist Party (PSB) to the presidency: "It is an environmental false".

Bolsa Familia, "a crime"

But a few weeks to go to the polls their criticisms are extended to all parties ". I am very concerned There is not a candidate representing the aspirations of the Brazilians," he says, and is especially hard with the Government Party Workers (PT), "a disaster" for Brazil.

One of the flagships of the management of PT is the Bolsa Familia program, which has helped significantly to get out of extreme poverty by 36 million Brazilians in the last 12 years, according to government data. Prince Bertrand has a different view: "It is a crime People become dependent on the state Vician people and do not want to work because they have the Family..".

His Imperial and Royal Highness -this is the title corresponde_ you have a family tree with ramifications for the Royal House of Bavaria, on his mother, and go back to the Capetos of the French Royal House on behalf of his great-grandfather, Gastão prince of Orleans, husband of Princess Isabel. In fact, Brazilians are related to princes, including the Spanish European royal families.

AGAINST ABDICATION

Prince Bertrand says deeply admire the Spanish royal family; the mother of King Juan Carlos, Maria de las Mercedes de Borbon y Orleans, was first cousin of his father, Pedro Henrique de Orleans and Braganza.

However, he believes that Juan Carlos should not have abdicated: "I am among those who think that kings, like potatoes, have to endure to the end". He is also convinced that the Spaniards would have liked more that Felipe had married a princess and not a commoner.

She lives with her brother Luiz, currently convalescing from disease- in São Paulo, in an apartment in the affluent district of Higienópolis. They are dedicated to lecture at various universities and institutions and subsistence also receive donations from monarchists.

Some of them met on 6 and 7 September in Rio de Janeiro, at the XXIV Meeting Royalist.Fifty royalists all over Brazil attended the meeting, chaired by Prince Bertrand, his brother Prince Antonio, and his son Rafael.

I had to think about it for a moment, but the relationship asserted in the last section by Prince Bertrand is correct. Whether the extreme traditionalism and conservatism exhibited by this branch of the Brazilian Imperial House is correct or no depends on your way of thinking, but it cannot be denied that it is an obstacle to the anyway unlikely event of a restoration. NeoCrusader may be interested also to read my lengthy disquisitions on the Brazilian monarchy located on the 1848 thread in the European Royal Genealogy section. Probably not, though, not too many others have been. And if you do go there take some bottled water, it's a long hike.

I've had an interesting discussion the other day with a Brazilian who said Dom Pedro was deposed because "he supported slavery for 50 years".

Now it's interesting just how the more I like the more blatantly wrong they were !

He did not supported the slavery. He was an abolitionist, but he could not abolish the slavery at once because the pro-slavery elite were extremely powerful. He managed to approve some laws that made the slavery harder in 1850 (Eusébio de Queirós law, that prohibited the entrance of slaves in Brazil), in 1871 (Ventre Livre law, that made free every children son of slaves born since the approval of the law, although the parent's owner could choose to immediately free the child or keep until the age of 21) and in 1885 (Sexagenários law, that prohibits the slaves older than 60 years old from working). And when the slavery was banned by him and his daughter in 1888, the elite gave support to the republicans, who overthrew him out of the throne in 1889 without resistance.
