Duarte Pio Nuno João Henrique Pedro Miguel Gabriel Rafael de Bragança was born in Bern, Switzerland, in a hotel room where extraterritoriality was declared for the purpose of being born on Portuguese soil, the eldest son of Dom Duarte Nuno, Duke of Braganza and his wife Princess Francisca of Orléans-Braganza, princess of Orleans-Braganza. At the time of his birth Duarte's family was banned from entering Portugal by the laws of exile of 19 December 1834 and 15 October 1910. Although Portugal had been a republic since 1910, Dom Duarte's parents sought to assure the child's eventual rights of succession to the Portuguese throne, which required Portuguese nationality, by arranging for his birth to take place in the Portuguese embassy in Bern.A small fringe of Portuguese monarchists dispute these rights of succession. Dom Duarte's godparents were Pope Pius XII and Queen Amélie of Portugal, the mother of Manuel II, the last reigning king of Portugal. On 27 May 1950, the Nation...
From 1968 to 1971, Dom Duarte fulfilled his military service as a helicopter pilot in the Portuguese Air Force in Angola at the time of the Colonial War. In 1972, he participated with a multi-ethnic Angolan group in the organization of an independent list of candidates to the National Assembly. This resulted in his expulsion from Angola by order of the then Prime Minister Marcelo Caetano.
There are closer female-line relatives of Manuel II of Portugal(who according to the Constitutional Charter of 1826 have succession rights), but none of these has Portuguese nationality (which was required by the Constitutional Charter for succession to the throne); and so far none has made any active claim to the throne. A small fringe of Portuguese monarchists do not recognise Duarte as pretender to the throne or as Duke of Braganza. The dispute dates back to 1828 when Dom Duarte's great-grandfather Dom Miguel I proclaimed himself king of Portugal. Dom Miguel I was eventually exiled by his niece Queen Dona Maria II. According to the law of banishment (Lei do Banimento) of 1834 and the Constitution of 1838, Dom Miguel I and all his descendants were forever excluded from the succession to the throne. However, in 1842 the Constitutional Charter of 1826 was reinstated, and this constitution (which was in place until 1910 when the monarchy was overthrown) had no bar to the succession b...
Dom Duarte was a major campaigner for the independence of East Timor, a former Portuguese colony which was forcibly annexed by Indonesia in 1975. Before the issue came to the attention of the world media, Dom Duarte contributed with several national and international campaigns for the political self-determination of the territory. These included "Timor 87 Vamos Ajudar" and "Lusitânia Expresso" in 1992. In 1997, Dom Duarte also suggested a referendum on the independence of East Timor to the Indonesian Vice-President Jusuf Habibie. After Habibie became president of Indonesia in 1999, a referendum was made that resulted in the independence of the country. Duarte Pio was named a East Timor citizen in 2011 after a resolution from the East Timor parliament.
On 13 May 1995, Dom Duarte married Isabel de Herédia, a Portuguese businesswoman. This was the first marriage of a member of the Portuguese royal family to take place in Portugal since the marriage of King Carlos I in 1886. The ceremony was celebrated in the Monastery of Jerónimos in Lisbon and presided over by Cardinal António Ribeiro, Patriarch of Lisbon. It was attended by the principal Portuguese political figures, including the President of the Republic Mário Soares, the President of the Assembly of the Republic, and the Prime Minister Aníbal Cavaco Silva. Also present were representatives of most of the European royal houses. Dom Duarte and Dona Isabel have three children: 1. Infante Afonso, Prince of Beira, Duke of Barcelos(born 25 March 1996) 2. Infanta Maria Francisca (born 3 March 1997) 3. Infante Dinis, Duke of Porto(born 25 November 1999) The marriage of Dom Duarte and Dona Isabel and the birth of their first son were occasions of widespread news media attention in Portu...
