Maria II of Portugal implys the existance of a Maria I
Indeed ... because she was a joint sovereign with her husband (King Pedro III), I wasn't sure how to date her reign. That being said, the reality was that she inherited the Portuguese throne in her own right, as the successor to her father upon his death in 1777, and hence occupied it until her own death in 1816 -- even though she never really ruled.
No, you are wrong.
D.Maria I was a Queen in her own right and she did rule until her son D.Jo„o was proclaimed Regent when she went mad.
Her reign went from her father's death in 1777 to her own death in 1816.
Her husband D.Pedro III was a sort of decorative figure who never had any interference nor interest in the government affairs.
His interests lie on the building of Queluz Palace, hunting and music, full stop.
