I like the fact that Dom Duarte Pio, Duke of Braganza's second son, The Duke of Porto, has the first name of Dinis.   
Previously there was an Infante Dinis (1354-1403) who was the son of King Pedro I of Portugal.

What are the rumors about Duarte's sexuality? 

Lifelong "bachelor", last in his "Royal" line, never seen with a woman hithertofore, then....quite suddenly....marriage to a (much younger) suitable woman who had never been heard of before...the math adds up.

Once I watched on Youtube an interview with him from 1994 and he said that he had some girlfriends but he didn't married because they were very complicated. He also said that after try and try he decided to stay alone and wait for the right girl. One year after this interview he married to Isabel. By the way, they meet each other at her house (he was a friend of her father) when she was just 16 and he was 37. Another interesting fact is that he taught her how to swim.

King John V of Portugal reigned from 1706 to 1750. One of his first kingly acts was to intimate his adherence to the Grand Alliance which his father King Peter II had joined in 1703.

Peter II was King of Portugal from 1683 until 1706. He obtained papal approval for the elevation of the Bahia bishopric to the status of archbishopric.

Just curious, why would he do that? Mental issues?
