Chapter Summary

This chapter will highlight that even a 'weak and marginalised' power has its use for this avenue of 'foreign and colonial policy'. The first two parts of this chapter will demonstrate that the King's interest had a part to play in seemingly unofficial business where the survival of the Estado da India was concerned. this chapter shows that João V's impulse to assert a more formal presence on Timor needs to be seen in the context of the alliances made with local chiefs as well as sponsorship of the religiosos (specifically, the diocese of Melaka); and not merely as a desperate attempt to regain that bit of the still-lucrative concession leg in the Far East. It is also in this sense that it is apt for the discussion on cultural-religious enterprises and Timor to be brought together in this chapter.

Keywords:colonial policy; Estado da India; foriegn policy; João V's; timor
