The changes in the Portuguese royal family in a 4-year time span. Photomontage from 1859 with individual photos by Wenceslau Cifka and Francisco Gomes [x]. Photo from 1863 by Francisco Augusto Gomes [x].
Queen Stephanie of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen died in July 1859 of dyphteria. King Pedro V and his brothers the Infantes Fernando and João died in November and December 1861 of typhoid fever; Augusto was also contaminated by the same disease but miraculously survived. Luís was the only brother not struck by the fever. The Infantas Maria Ana and Antónia married German princes and left Portugal in May 1859 and September 1861, respectively.
In the 1863 portrait we see the new King, Luís I, and his young wife Queen Maria Pia of Savoy. It’s likely that this picture was part of a session taken because of the birth of their first son, Carlos. We see also the King father, Ferdinand II of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and the Infante Augusto.
