— Portuguese Anthem
Huetugalball Portugalball The Man, officially the Huetuguese Huepublicball Portuguese Republicball, is a countryball living in the Iberian Peninsula. It is bordered by Spainball to the north and east, the Mediterranean to the south, and the Atlantic to the west.
The country is divided into 18 districts, and two Autonomous Regions, along with the capital Lisbonball located in Lisbon District, giving it a total area of 92 212 square kilometers, making it the 109th largest country in the world. As of 2020, it maintains a population of about 10.18 million inhabitants. It has five regions that have no political power but are still recognized as distinctive regions rather than just geographical areas (like Englandball).
Portugalball's national day is June 10th.
Early Portugal was an 2ball like the rest of the Iberian Peninsula and almost other Europeans. The name of Portugal derives from the joined Romano-Celtic name Portus Cale. The region was settled by Pre-Celts and Celts. It is believed by some scholars that early in the first millennium BC, several waves of Celts invaded Portugal from Central Europe and intermarried with the local populations, forming different tribes.
Based on the Roman chronicles about the Callaeci peoples, along with the Lebor Gabála Érenn narrations and the interpretation of the abundant archaeological remains throughout the northern half of Portugal and Galiciaball (Spain); it is possible to infer that theirs was a matriarchal society, with a military and religious aristocracy probably of Feudal type. The first documentary references to Castro society are provided by chroniclers of Roman military campaigns such as Strabo, Herodotus or Pliny the Elder, among others about the social organization, and describing the inhabitants of these territories, the Gallaeci of Northern Portugal Celts as: "A group of barbarians who spend the day fighting and the night eating, drinking and dancing under the moon."
Roman Lusitania and Gallaecia
Romans first invaded the Iberian Peninsula in 219 BC. The Carthaginians, Rome's adversary in the Punic Wars, were expelled from their coastal colonies. During the last days of Julius Caesar, almost the entire peninsula was annexed to SPQRball.
The Roman conquest of what is now part of Portugal took almost two hundred years and took many lives of young soldiers and the lives of those who were sentenced to certain death in the slave mines when not sold as slaves to other parts of the empire. It suffered a severe setback in 150 BC when a rebellion began in the north. Lusitaniball and other native tribes, under the leadership of Viriathus, wrested control of all of western Iberia.
The Romans eventually unconquered them by bribing Viriathus's allies to kill him. In 139 BC, Viriathus was assassinated, and Tautalus became the leader.
In 27 BC, Lusitania gained the status of a Roman province. Later, a northern province of Lusitania was formed, known as Gallaecia, with the capital in Bracara Augusta, today's Braga.
About 410 and during the 6th century it became a formally declared Kingdom of the Suebiball (Swabian), where king Hermeric made peace treaty with the Gallaecians before passing his domains to Rechila, his son. In 448 Réchila died, leaving the state in expand to Recharge.
After the defeat against the Visigoths, the Suevian kingdom was divided, with Frantan and Aguiulfo ruling simultaneously. Both reigned from 456 to 457, the year in which Madras (457-459) reunified the kingdom to finish being assassinated after a failed Roman-Visigothic conspiracy.
Although the conspiracy did not achieve its true purposes, the Swabian (Suevian) Kingdom was again divided between two kings: Frumar (Frumario 459-463) and Remismundo (son of Madras) (459-469) who would re-reunify his father's kingdom in 463 and that he would be forced to adopt Arianism in 465 due to the Visigoth influence.
By the year 500, the Visigothic Kingdom had been installed in Iberia, based in Toledo, and advancing westwards. They became a threat to the Suebian rule.
After the death of Remismund (Remismundo) a dark period set in, where virtually all written texts and accounts disappear. This period lasted until 550. The only thing known about this period is that Theodemund (Teodemundo) most probably ruled the Seubians.
The dark period ended with the reign of Karriarico (550-559) who reinstalled Catholicism in 550. He was succeeded by Theodemar or Theodemir (Teodomiro 559-570) during whose reign the 1st Council of Braga (561) was held.
In the Swabian Kingdom, many internal struggles continued to take place. Iberico (Eurico, 583-584) was dethroned by Andeca (Audeca 584-585), who failed to prevent the Visigothic invasion led by Leovigildo. The Visigothic invasion, completed in 585, turned the once rich and fertile kingdom of Suebia into the sixth province of the Gothic kingdom. Leovigild was crowned King of Gallaecia, Hispania, and Gallia Narbonensis.
For the next 300 years and by the year 700, the entire Iberian Peninsula was ruled by the Visigoths. Under the Visigoths, Gallaecia was a well-defined space governed by a doge of its own. Doges at this time were related to the monarchy acted as princes in all matters.
From the various Germanic groups who settled in Western Iberia, the Suebi left the strongest lasting cultural legacy in what is today Portugal, Galiciaball, and Asturias.
Today's modern-day continental Portugal, along with most of modern Spain, was part of al-Andalus between 711 AD – 1249 AD, following the Umayyad Caliphate conquest of the Iberian Peninsula in 711 AD. This occupation lasted from some decades in the North to five centuries in the South.
After defeating the Visigoths in only a few months, the Umayyad Caliphate started expanding rapidly in the peninsula. Beginning in 711, the land that is now Portugal became part of the vast Umayyad Caliphate's empire of Damascus, which stretched from the Indus river in the Indian sub-continent up to the South of France, until its collapse in 750.
That year the west of the empire gained its independence under Abd-ar-Rahman I with the establishment of the Emirate of Córdoba. After almost two centuries, the Emirate became the Caliphate of Córdoba in 929, until its dissolution a century later in 1031 into no less than 23 small kingdoms, called Taifa kingdoms.
The governors of the taifas each proclaimed themselves Emir of their provinces and established diplomatic relations with the Christian kingdoms of the north. Most of Portugal fell into the hands of the Taifa of Badajozball of the Aftasid Dynasty, and after a short spell of an ephemeral Taifa of Lisbonball in 1022, fell under the dominion of the Taifa of Sevilleball of the Abbadids poets. The Taifa period ended with the conquest of the Almoravidball in 1086 winning a decisive victory at the Battle of Sagrajas, followed a century later in 1147, after the second period of Taifa by the Almohads.
The Muslim population of the region consisted mainly of native Iberian converts to Islam and Berbers. The Arabs were principally noblemen from Syriaball and Omanball; and constituted the elite of the population.
At the end of the 9th century, the region of Portugal, between the rivers Minho and Douro, was freed or reconquered from the Moors by Vímara Peres on the orders of King Alfonso III of Asturias. The last great invasion, through the Minho (river), ended with the defeat of Olaf II Haraldsson in 1014 against the Galiciaball (Spain) nobility who also stopped further advances into (the County of) Portugal.
Vímara Peres organized the region he had reconquered, and elevated it to the status of County, naming it the County of Portugal after the region's major port city—Portus Cale' or modern Porto. One of the first cities Vimara Peres founded at this time is Vimaranes, known today as Guimarães—the "birthplace of the Portuguese nation" or the "cradle city".
After anschlussing the County of Portugal into one of the several counties that made up the Kingdom of Asturiasball, King Alfonso III of Asturias knighted Vímara Peres as the First Count of Portus Cale (Portugal). The region became known as the County of Portugal.
Later the Kingdom of Asturiasball was divided into a number of Christian kingdoms in Northern Iberia due to dynastic divisions of the inheritance among the king's offspring. With the forced abdication of Alfonso III "the Great" of Asturias by his sons in 910, Kingdom of Asturiasball split into three separate kingdoms of León, Galicia, and Asturias.
The Kingdom of Galicia (which included Portugal and Galicia) was handed to Ordono II, the second eldest child of Alfonso III. The three kingdoms were eventually reunited in 924 (León and Galicia in 914, Asturias later) under the crown of León.
Afonso Henriques received divine intervention at the Battle of Ourique (1139), where he was acclaimed King of the Portuguese. At the Battle of São Mamede, Afonso Henriques defeated his mother and his lover, thereby establishing himself as sole leader. Afonso then turned his arms against the Moors in the south.
He obtained an overwhelming victory in the Battle of Ourique, and was unanimously proclaimed King of Portugal by his soldiers. This is taken as the occasion when the County of Portugal, as a fief of the Kingdom of León, was transformed into the independent Kingdom of Portugal.
Afonso then established the first of the Portuguese Cortes at Lamego, where he was crowned by the Archbishop of Braga, though the validity of the Cortes of Lamego has been disputed and called a myth created during the Portuguese Restoration War. Afonso was recognized in 1143 by King Alfonso VII of León, and in 1179 by Pope Alexander III.
During the Reconquista period, Christians reconquered the Iberian Peninsula from Moorish domination. At this time, Portugal covered about half of its present area. In 1249, the Reconquista ended with the capture of the Algarve and the complete expulsion of the last Moorish settlements on the southern coast, giving Portugal its present-day borders, with minor exceptions.
In 1348 and 1349 Portugal, like the rest of Europe, was devastated by the Black Death. In 1373, Portugal made an alliance with England, which is the longest-standing alliance in the world. Over time, this went far beyond geo-political and military cooperation (protecting both nations' interests in Africa, the Americas, and Asia against French, Spanish and Dutch rivals) and maintained strong trade and cultural ties between the two old European allies. Particularly in the Oporto region, there is visible English influence to this day.
Portugal spearheaded European exploration of the world and the Age of Discovery from the early 14th century to the late 16th century. During this period, Portugal explored the Atlantic Ocean, discovering several Atlantic archipelagos, explored the African coast and colonized some areas of Africa, discovered an eastern route to India via the Cape of Good Hope, discovered Brazilball, established trading routes throughout most of southern Asia, and sent the first direct European maritime trade and diplomatic missions to Chinaball and Japanball.
In 1415, Portugal acquired the first of its overseas colonies by conquering Ceuta, and its discoveries in the North Atilanic of Madeira and the Azores led to the first colonization movements.
The Treaty of Tordesillas, intended to resolve the dispute that had been created following the return of Christopher Columbus, was made by Pope Alexander VI, the mediator between Portugal and Spain. It was signed on 7 June 1494 and divided the newly discovered lands outside Europe between the two countries along a meridian 370 leagues west of the Cape Verdeball's (off the west coast of Africa).
In 1498, Vasco da Gama reached Indiaball and brought economic prosperity to Portugal and helpped start the Portuguese Renaissance. In 1500, Portugal reached what is now Canada and founded the town of Portugal Cove-St. Philip's, Newfoundland and Labradorball, long before the French and English in the 17th century, and is just one of many Portuguese colonizations of the Americas.
In 1500, Pedro Álvares Cabral discovered Brazilball and claimed it for Portugal. Ten years later, Afonso de Albuquerque conquered Goa in Indiaball, Muscat, Ormuz in the Persian Strait, and Malacca. Thus, the Portuguese empire held dominion over commerce in the Indian Ocean and South Atlantic. In Eastern Asia, Portuguese sailors landed in places as Taiwanball, Japanball, the island of East Timorball, and in the Moluccas.
All these factors made Portugal one of the world's major economic, military, and political powers from the 15th century until the late 16th century.
Iberian Union, Restoration, and early Brigantine era
Portugal's sovereignty was interrupted between 1580 and 1640. This occurred because the last two kings of the House of Aviz – King Sebastian, who died in the battle of Alcácer Quibir in Morocco, and his great-uncle and successor, King-Cardinal Henry of Portugal – both died without heirs, resulting in the Portuguese succession crisis of 1580.
Philip II of Spainball claimed the throne and so became Philip I of Portugal. Although Portugal did not lose its formal independence, it was governed by the same monarch who governed the Spanish Empire, briefly forming a union of kingdoms. At this time Spain was a geographic territory. The joining of the two crowns deprived Portugal of independent foreign policy and led to its involvement in the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Netherlands.
The war led to a deterioration of the relations Englandball, and the loss of the strategic trading post Hormuz. From 1595 to 1663 the Dutch-Portuguese War primarily involved the Dutch Republicball's companies invading many Portuguese colonies and commercial interests in Brazilball, Africa, Indiaball and the Far East, causing the Portuguese to lose their sea trade monopoly.
In 1640, John IV spearheaded an uprising backed by nobles and was proclaimed king. The Portuguese Restoration War between Portugal and Spanish Empireball, in the aftermath of the 1640 revolt, ended the sixty-year period of Iberian Unionball under the House of Habsburg. This was the beginning of the House of Braganza which reigned in Portugal until 1910.
King John IV's eldest son came to reign as Afonso VI, however, his physical and mental disabilities left him overpowered by Luís de Vasconcelos e Sousa, 3rd Count of Castelo Melhor. After Afonso's death, Pedro came to the throne as King Pedro II. Pedro's reign saw the consolidation of national independence, imperial expansion, and investment in domestic production.
Official estimates – and most estimates made so far – place the number of Portuguese migrants to Colonial Brazilball during the gold rush of the 18th century at 600,000. This represented one of the largest movements of European populations to their colonies in the Americas during colonial times.
Pombaline era and Enlightenment
In 1738, Sebastião José de Carvalho de Melo, 1st Marquis of Pombal, began a diplomatic career as the Portuguese Ambassador in London and later in Vienna. Joseph I was fond of de Melo, and with the Queen Mother's approval, he appointed Melo as Minister of Foreign Affairs.
As the King's confidence in de Melo increased, the King entrusted him with more control of the state. By 1755, Sebastião de Melo was made Prime Minister. He successfully implemented good economic policies in Portugal, abolished slavery in Portugal and in the Portuguese colonies in Indiaball; and ended discrimination against different Christian sects in Portugal.
But Sebastião de Melo's greatest reforms were economic and financial, with the creation of several companies and guilds to regulate every commercial activity. He ruled with a strong hand by imposing strict laws upon all classes of Portuguese society from the high nobility to the poorest working class. These reforms gained him enemies in the upper classes, especially among the high nobility, who despised him as a social upstart.
On the morning of 1 November 1755, Lisbon was struck by a violent earthquake with an estimated moment magnitude of 8.5–9. The city was razed to the ground by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami and fires. Sebastião de Melo survived by a stroke of luck and then immediately embarked on rebuilding the city, with his famous quote: "What now? We bury the dead and take care of the living."
Lisbon suffered no epidemics due to the earthquake and death toll and within less than one year was already being rebuilt. The new city center of Lisbon was designed to resist subsequent earthquakes. Sebastião de Melo also made an important contribution to the study of seismology by designing an inquiry that was sent to every parish in the country.
Following the earthquake, Joseph I gave de Melo even more power, and he became a powerful, progressive dictator. As his power grew, his enemies increased in number, and bitter disputes with the high nobility became frequent. In 1758 Joseph I was wounded in an attempted assassination. The Távora family and the Duke of Aveiro were implicated and executed after a quick trial. Sebastião de Melo prosecuted every person involved, even women and children. This was the final stroke that broke the power of the aristocracy. Joseph I made his loyal minister Count of Oeiras in 1759.
In 1762, Spainball invaded Portuguese territory as part of the Seven Years' War, but by 1763 the status quo between Spain and Portugal before the war had been restored.
In the autumn of 1807, Franceball began moving its troops through Spainball to invade Portugal. While British-Portuguese forces fought against the invasion from 1807 to 1811, the royal family and the Portuguese nobility relocated to the Portuguese colony Brazilball. This is known as the Transfer of the Portuguese Court to Brazilball.
Napoleon's occupation cause, Portugal to begin a slow decline that lasted until the 20th century, which was hastened by the independence Brazilball in 1822. In 1807, as Franceball's army closed in on Lisbonball, Portugal transferred its court to Brazilball. In 1815, Brazilball was declared a kingdom, and the Kingdom of Portugal was united with it, forming a continental state, the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil, and the Algarvesball.
As a result of the change in its status and the arrival of the Portuguese royal family, Brazilian administrative, civic, economical, military, educational, and scientific apparatus were expanded and highly modernized. When the situation in Europe had cooled down enough so that João VI could return safely to Lisbonball, he instead chose to remain in Brazilball until the Liberal Revolution of 1820, that demanded his return to Lisbonball in 1821.
He returned to Portugal but left his son Pedro in charge of Brazilball. When the Portuguese Government attempted the following year to return the Kingdom of Brazil to subordinate status, his son Pedro, with the overwhelming support of the Brazilian elites, declared Brazilball's independence from Portugal. Cisplatinaball (today's state of Uruguayball), was one of the last additions to the territory of Brazilball under Portuguese rule.
Brazilian independence was recognized in 1825, whereby Emperor Pedro I granted his father the titular honor of Emperor of Brazil. John VI's death in 1826 caused serious questions about his succession. Though Pedro was his heir and reigned briefly as Pedro IV, his status as a Brazilian monarch was seen as an impediment to holding the Portuguese throne by both nations.
Pedro abdicated in favor of his daughter, Maria II. However, Pedro's brother, Infante Miguel, claimed the throne in protest. After a proposal for Miguel and Maria to marry failed, Miguel seized power as King Miguel I, in 1828. In order to defend his daughter's rights to the throne, Pedro launched the Liberal Wars to reinstall his daughter and establish a constitutional monarchy in Portugal. The war ended in 1834, with Miguel's defeat, the promulgation of a constitution, and the reinstatement of Queen Maria II.
Last kings and republican period
Queen Maria II (Mary II) and King Ferdinand II's son, King Pedro V (Peter V) modernized the country during his short reign (1853–1861). Under his reign, roads, telegraphs, and railways were constructed and improvements in public health advanced.
His popularity increased when during the cholera outbreak of 1853–1856, he visited hospitals handing out gifts and comforting the sick. Pedro's reign was short, as he died of cholera in 1861 after a series of deaths in the royal family, including his two brothers and his wife. Not having children, his brother Luís I of Portugal (Louis I) ascended the throne and continued his modernization.
With the Conference of Berlin of 1884, Portuguese African territories had their borders formally established at the request of Portugal in order to protect the centuries-long Portuguese interests in the continent from rivalries enticed by the Scramble for Africa. Even before the turn of the 20th century, railway tracks as the Benguela railway in Angolaball, and the Beira railway in Mozambique, started to be built to link coastal areas and selected inland regions.
The Portuguese territories in Africa were Cape Verdeball, São Tomé and Príncipe, Guinea-Bissau, Angolaball, and Mozambiqueball. In addition, Portugal still ruled the Asian territories of Goaball, Timor Lesteball, and Macauball.
On 1 February 1908, the king Dom Carlos I of Portugal and his heir apparent, Prince Royal Dom Luís Filipe, Duke of Braganza, were murdered in Lisbonball. Under his rule, Portugal had twice been declared bankrupt – on 14 June 1892, and again on 10 May 1902 – causing social turmoil, economic disturbances, protests, revolts, and criticism of the monarchy. Manuel II of Portugal became the new king but was eventually overthrown by the 5 October 1910 revolution, which abolished the regime and instated republicanism in Portugal.
Political instability and economic weaknesses were fertile ground for chaos and unrest during the Portuguese First Republic. These conditions would lead to the failed Monarchy of the North, the 28 May 1926 coup d'état, and the creation of the National Dictatorship (Ditadura Nacional). This, in turn, led to the establishment of the right-wing dictatorship of the Estado Novo under António de Oliveira Salazar in 1933.
Portugal was one of only five European countries to remain neutral in World War II. From the 1940s to the 1960s, Portugal was a founding member of NATOball, OECD, and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA).
After Indiaball attained independence in 1947, pro-Indian residents of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, with the support of the Indian government and the help of pro-independence organizations, separated the territories of Dadra and Nagar Haveli from Portuguese rule in 1954. In 1961, São João Baptista de Ajudá's annexation by Republic of Dahomey was the start of a process that led to the final dissolution of the centuries-old Portuguese Empire.
According to the census of 1921 São João Baptista de Ajudá had 5 inhabitants and, at the moment of the ultimatum by the Dahomey Government, it had only 2 inhabitants representing Portuguese Sovereignty.
Another forcible retreat from overseas territories occurred in December 1961 when Portugal refused to relinquish the territories of Goa, Daman, and Diu. As a result, the Portuguese army and navy were involved in armed conflict in its colony of Portuguese India against the Indian Armed Forces.
The operations resulted in the defeat and surrender of the limited Portuguese defensive garrison, which was forced to surrender to a much larger military force. The outcome was the loss of the remaining Portuguese territories in the Indian subcontinent. The Portuguese regime refused to recognize Indian sovereignty over the annexed territories, which continued to be represented in Portugal's National Assembly until the military coup of 1974.
Also in the early 1960s, independence movements in the Portuguese overseas provinces of Angolaball, Mozambique, and Guinea in Africa resulted in the Portuguese Colonial War (1961–1974).
The Portuguese government and army resisted the decolonization of its overseas territories until April 1974, when a bloodless left-wing military coup in Lisbonball, known as the Carnation Revolution, led the way for the independence of the overseas territories in Africa and Asia, as well as for the restoration of democracy after two years of a transitional period known as PREC (Processo Revolucionário Em Curso). By 1975, all the Portuguese African territories were independent and Portugal held its first democratic elections in 50 years.
Portugal continued to be governed by a junta until the Portuguese legislative election of 1976. It was won by the Portuguese Socialist Party (PS) and Mário Soares, its leader, became Prime Minister of the 1st Constitutional Government on 23 July.
Mário Soares would be Prime Minister from 1976 to 1978 and again from 1983 to 1985. Soares tried to resume the economic growth and development record that had been achieved during the last decade of the previous regime. He started to join the European Economic Community (EEC) by starting accession negotiations as early as 1977.
In 1986, Portugal joined the European Economic Community (EEC) which later became the EUball. In the following years, Portugal's economy progressed considerably as a result of EEC/EU structural and cohesion funds and Portuguese companies' easier access to foreign markets.
Portugal's last overseas territory, Macauball, was peacefully handed over to Chinaball in 1999, under the 1987 joint declaration that set the terms for Macauball's handover from Portugal to Chinaball. In 2002, the independence of East Timor (Asia) was formally recognized by Portugal, after an incomplete decolonization process that was started in 1975.
On 5 July 2004, José Manuel Barroso, then Prime Minister of Portugal, was nominated President of the European Commission, the most powerful office in the European Union.
Portugalball has seen a constant flow of different civilizations during the past 3100 years. Tartesos, Celts, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Lusitanians, Germanic (Suevi and Visigoths), Muslims, Jews, and others have left their mark on the culture, history, language, and ethnicity.
