Sobre o livro
Holland House and Portugal, a study in political and diplomatic history, focuses on the relations between Lord Holland and Portugal from 1793 to 1840. The book traces the evolution of Hollands views on Portugal from the time of his first visit to Spain to his later contribution to the establishment of a constitutional regime in Portugal.
Lord Hollands influence on the establishment of a constitutional regime in Spain in 180910 and indirectly and unintentionally in Portugal in 182023 is examined at some length, as is his contribution to the establishment of a Liberal regime in Portugal in 1834. Holland House and Portugal includes a study of the extent of Hollands support for the Portuguese Liberal cause after Dom Miguels usurpation of the throne in 1828 and of his subsequent role in the Liberal invasion of Portugal. The book also discusses Hollands contribution to the end of the Portuguese Civil War in 1834 and to the subsequent establishment of a constitutional regime in that country.
