  • Burial Lisbon, Lisboa Municipality, Lisboa, Portugal
  • Memorial ID 25525056

Portuguese infanta and the sole daughter of King Peter II of Portugal and his first wife and former sister-in-law Marie-Françoise of Savoy. As such she was styled Princess of Beira. She was the presumptive heir to the throne of Portugal between 1668 and 1689, the year her half-brother John was born. She was planned to marry Victor Amadeus II of Savoy and many royal heads in Europe but every arrangement failed due in part to her fragile health. For this she was nicknamed Sempre-noiva, "Always-engaged". She died in 1690 when she was just 22 years old.
