Exhibition “D. Maria II. From Brazilian Princess to Queen of Portugal 1819-1853”

    The exhibition “D. Maria II. From the Brazilian Princess to the Queen of Portugal 1819-1853” opens on the 26th of May, at the King D. Luís Gallery, in the National Palace of Ajuda.

    The exhibition is the result of a wide institutional collaboration between the Museum of the Presidency of the Republic and the National Palace of Ajuda, with the participation of several public and private entities.

    This exhibition brings together pieces from different national heritage museums, the Regional Government of the Azores, autarchies and private collections, with hundreds of works of art and documents that illustrate a period as complex as it is rich, of national contemporaneity. There are pieces recently restored by the José de Figueiredo Laboratory, namely several personal jewels of the Queen and the Crown of Portugal, a symbolic piece that has not been observed by the public for more than two decades, as well as other restorations sponsored by the Museum of the Presidency.

    It will be open to the public until September 29
