Msg event.pngColonial Policy


Throughout Portuguese colonization the salary for officials was only a token sum. However it was assumed that any important position would allow for the person appointed to gain huge personal wealth. It was two sides of the same coin. On one side, the king didn't have to pay high salaries, but on the other hand large parts of the profits stayed in the hands of the officials.

Msg event.pngThe Duke of Coimbra


King Afonso was only 6 years old when he became king of Portugal. For the first 6 years of his reign the country has been ruled by the Duke of Coimbra. Don Afonso has had no reason for complaint and by most accounts this regency has been a just and efficient one.
However, with the young king reaching majority there are now many in our court who would try to influence their monarch. Jealous of the Duke’s influence a group of noblemen has been trying to sow discord between him and the king, trying to frame him as a would-be rebel.
In a last attempt to mend relations the Duke of Coimbra has arrived with a number of retainers to seek an audience with Don Afonso.

Msg event.pngGovernor Martim Afonso de Sousa in Brazil


Leading colonists were given strips of land that extended from the Brazilian coast reaching into the interior. The land owners, often captains, settled colonists in their respective captaincies and were required to provide them with protection and justice. As the captaincies were independent, they were unable to defend themselves from foreign pirates. João III appointed a governor general with authority over the captaincies. De Sousa established his capital at São Salvador da Baia. He defeated French pirates in a naval engagement in the bay of Rio de Janeiro. De Sousa also intensified colonization and created stability in Brazil.

This disaster led the way to Spanish control of Portugal and was the starting point of Portugal's decline.

Msg event.pngThe Methuen Agreement


John Methuen was born in 1650. An accomplished diplomat, he is well remembered for the treaty signed in 1703 between England and Portugal. The main purpose of the treaty was to allow free introduction of English wool and cloths to Portugal in exchange of free entry of Portuguese wine into England (Port wine). The treaty made in effect Portugal an economic and political satellite of England, was effectively in place all the way to 1750, when King D Jose I choose to ignore it, even while it was still formally in effect until 1836. John Methuen died in 1706 shortly after his greatest success.

Msg event.pngEarthquake destroys Lisboa


The Earthquake that destroyed Lisboa was a catastrophe of huge proportions that resounded all across Europe and even into the new world. 1 November 1755, a beautiful day, when next to everyone was in the churches celebrating a holiday the ground suddenly started to shake and the churches started caving in, crushing the visitors. For those that escaped it was far from over as a heavy breeze of wind suddenly started to come in over the area beating the small fires into a virtual inferno incinerating thousands. But yet thousands of people would fall victim for the grand tidal wave reaching land just a few minutes later. The death count was estimated to 20.000-40.000 people at the time and given all four elements (wind, fire, earth & water) the explanation 'punishment by god' was a view widely spread both in Portugal and elsewhere.

Msg event.pngMarquês de Pombal


Literally from the ashes of Lisboa, a new leader rose to the power and managed to shake entire Portugal out of the trauma caused by the earthquake. He forced through many far reaching reforms. During his rule Lisboa was rebuilt and Portugal entered into the pre-industrial era. In many ways his excellent governing would, for a time, bring back Portugal almost to its former level of glory a few hundred years back.

Msg event.pngThe Expulsion of Marquês de Pombal


After the death of the king the forces that had been conspiring to end his life earlier now turned their attention towards the person that had been the real ruler of the Portuguese kingdom, Marquês de Pombal. With no support from a king, Pombal's position was hazardous at best and he was forced to flee. Consequently the reforms he had started that had gotten Portugal back on the path to prosperity were not to last. Instead, grossly reactionary policies implemented by the 'Old Nobility and the Men of the Church' again moved Portugal backwards, threatening to let her end up in the backwater of most of the other European powers in the centuries to come.

In 1492 Christopher Columbus undertook his famous journey for Castile and sailed west across the Atlantic in search of a western route to the Orient. Seven years earlier in 1485, Christopher Columbus had presented the same plan to the King of Portugal, John II, who after submitting the proposal to his experts had rejected it. Columbus had made yet another attempt to convince the King in 1488 but as the Portuguese explorer Bartholomeu Dias around this time had successfully rounded the Cape of Good Hope, an eastern sea route to Asia seemed more likely and the King once again rejected Columbus's proposal.

Msg event.pngAtlantic Slave Trade


The exploitation of land and resources in the New World colonies led to an extensive use of slave labor. As a large part of the indigenous population died from overwork and diseases spread from Europe, the labor shortage soon became problematic. Indentured servitude lessened this somewhat but failed to provide the workforce needed. The solution became the Atlantic slave trade, where slaves captured or bought along the West Africa coast were transported to Brazil. Over 3 million African slaves were sent to Brazil, mainly to work on the vast sugar plantations.

Msg event.pngMissionaries in the Spice Islands


The archipelago of Moluccas was historically known as the 'Spice Islands' and became an important part of the Portuguese trade network in Southeast Asia during the 16th century. After their expulsion from Ternete, the Portuguese established their new center of trade on the island of Ambon, which had been discovered in 1513. Though the Portuguese were regularly attacked by native Muslims in the region, missionaries managed to convert a large number of natives. By the end of the 16th century there were more than 50.000 Christians in the Moluccas, most of them living on Ambon.

When Portugal became independent again in 1640, the monastery saw further construction with the addition of a gold tiled ceiling in 1669 and large frescos completed at the end of the 18th century. The monastery also became the burial place for the royal family.
