was a monarchy, the kings held various other titles and pretensions. Two kings of Portugal, Ferdinand I and Afonso V, also claimed the crown of Castile . When the house of Habsburg came into power, the kings of Spain , and Naples , also became kings of Portugal. The house of Braganza brought numerous titles to the Portuguese Crown, including King of Brazil and then Emperor of Brazil .

After the demise of the Portuguese monarchy, in 1910, Portugal

almost restored its monarchy in a revolution known as the Monarchy of the North , though the attempted restoration only lasted a month before destruction. With Manuel II's death, the Miguelist

branch of the house of Braganza became the pretenders to the throne of Portugal. They have all been acclaimed king of Portugal

The descendants of Queen Maria II , and her consort, King Ferdinand II (a German prince of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha ), came to rule in 1853. Portuguese law and custom treated them as members of the House of Braganza, though they were still Saxe-Coburg dynasts. This has led some to classify these last four monarchs of Portugal
