Poet, Journalist, Politician. Abílio Guerra Junqueiro was born in Freixo de Espada à Cinta, in the Trás-os-Montes region, and studied theology and law at the University of Coimbra. His life was a combination of peaceful rural life devoted to farming in the Douro region, and public life dedicated to political struggles, which led him to be a member of the Portuguese parliament and a diplomat. He was linked to the Vencidos da Vida group, but broke away from some of its members at the time of the British ultimatum in 1890, becoming one of the staunchest supporters of the Republican ideal. His most famous works "A morte de D. João" (1874), "A Velhice do Padre Eterno" (1885) and "Pátria" (1896), are political manifestos that use grandiose fluency and frequently biting sarcasm. Later works are "Os Simples" (1892) and Oração à Luz (1903). He died in Lisbon, and his remains were translated from the Jeronimos Monastery to the National Pantheon on December 1st, 1966.
