30 facts about Portugal - part 1

Published on 1/8/2019
For additional information  Click Here

1. Portugal holds the records for the longest, and shortest, reigning monarchs in the world

The first ruler Alfonso  Henrique I of Portugal reigned for 73 years, 220 days; Crown Prince Luís Filipe was technically King of Portugal for 20 minutes after his father Dom Carlos I was assassinated on 1 February 1908 and before he was wounded in the same attack and died shortly afterwards.

2. Portugal is the oldest nation-state in Europe

It became the kingdom of Portugal in 1139, and Portugal’s borders have barely changed since 1297 when the Portuguese and Spanish signed a treaty handing over the Algarve to Portugal. The first king, Alfonso I Henriques, came to power in 1143 and the country remained a kingdom for the next 800 years up until 1910, when it became a republic.

3. Portugal’s official name República Portuguesa (the Portuguese Republic) is named after the country’s second largest city of Porto

Today, Portugal consists of mainland Portugal, the Azores and the Madeira Archipelago. The nine islands of the Azores are situated about two hours’ flight from the mainland in the Atlantic Ocean. The Madeira Archipelago, which consists of Madeira, Porto Santo and two uninhabited islands which are nature reserves, lies about 500km off the African coast.

4. Portugal’s dictatorship for almost half of the 20th century is considered the longest in Europe

The authoritarian regime was in power from 1926 to 1974, with Antonio de Oliviera Salazar in control for most of that time. First was the Ditadura Nacional (National Dictatorship), followed by the Estado Novo (‘New State’). A bloodless coup known as the ‘carnation revolution’ overthrew the authoritarian regime on the 25 April 1974. This day is commemorated every year with the public holiday Freedom Day. Portugal became a democratic republic in 1976.
