Catherine Of Braganza
Birth: Nov. 25, 1638
Death: Nov. 30, 1705

British monarch, Queen consort of King Charles II. The daughter of John IV of Portugal and Luisa de Guzman. She married Charles in May of 1662. She was not a popular queen, being Roman Catholic, and her faith prevented her from being crowned. Charles was a womanizer, but Catherine failed to give birth to a living heir, despite several pregnancies. She was neglected by her husband, who continued to have children by his mistresses, and he refused to divorce her. Upon Charles' death in 1685, she returned to Portugal, where she died at the age of 67. After her death she was entombed in the Jeronimite Church (Lisbon). In 1914, the body was removed to the pantheon of the royal House of Braganza, in the Church of Saint Vincent of Fora (Lisbon, Portugal). (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
