Abstract

Portugal has been an independent State since the twelfth century; until 1910 it was a monarchy. The last King was Manoel II. of the house of Braganza-Coburg, born November 15, 1889, younger sou of King Carlos I. and Queen Mary Amélie, daughter of Philippe Duc d’Orléans. Manoel II. succeeded to the throne on the assassination of his father and elder brother, Prince Luiz Philip, February 1, 1908. On October 5, 1910, the republic was proclaimed, after a short revolution, and a provisional government established with Dr. Theophilo Braga as the Provisional President (October 5, 1910, to August 24, 1911). The first President of the Republic was Dr. Manoel de Arriaga (August 24, 1911, to May 27, 1915); the second, who was elected for the remainder of the term of the first, was Dr. Theophilo Braga (May 29 to October 5, 1915); the third was Dr. Bernardino Machado, who held office from October 5, 1915 to December 8, 1917; the fourth President was Dr. Sidonio Paes (April 28, 1918, to December 15, 1918).
