Hello Pedro,

 

Thank you for you nice words ;-). For those of those who do not know
Portuguese history, here is a little resume of Duchess Mântua (which I do
not think I am related to)

 

Margarida de Saboia (Turim <http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turim> , 28 de
APril <http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/28_de_Abril>   1589
<http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/1589>  — Miranda de Ebro
<http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miranda_de_Ebro> , 26 de June
<http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/26_de_Junho>  1656
<http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/1656> ),

 

“She previously served as vice - queen of Portugal , being in charge of the
kingdom when the Restoration of Independence, so the last ruler of Portugal
on behalf of the Philippine Dynasty . Became known in the history of
Portugal by the name of the Duchess of Mântua , title that came by marrying
the Duke Francisco de Gonzaga , House of Gonzaga , who was the landlord of
the Italian city of Mantua , ruling it as sovereign Duke”

 

Portugal lost its independence (becoming part of Spain) from 1580 until 1640
when the restoration of independence occurred.

 

Best regards,

Octávio

 

Octávio? I hate the bastard!

 

(he probably is a relative of the Duchess of Mantua, who isn't regarded in
high esteem around here since the 17th century....)
