THE QUEEN'S PORTRAIT ROOM

Photo Henrique Ruas IMC/PNA
Pride of place on the main wall is the portrait of Maria Pia, at 33, dressed for a formal occasion in blue and white, the colours of the Portuguese monarchy, by Carolus Duran. The seating in the room is of particular historical importance. It was used on board the Príncipe Real, the ship which took João VI and his retinue to Brazil, after the invasion of Napoleonic forces.
