Chapter Summary

During the second half of the nineteenth century, a major effort was underway in Lisbon to first make the colonies profitable, expand and define the territories of both Angola and Mozambique, and, above all else, retain possession of the five African colonies held by Portugal during the division of Africa by the various European powers. Making Angola, in particular, into a second Brazil would become one of the long-term objectives in Lisbon. The creative reform and colonization effort on the part of the Portuguese was the joint creation of a handful of major personalities in nineteenth century Portugal. Three of these were politicians: João Pinheiro Chagas, Manuel Joaquim Pinheiro Chagas, and João de Andrade Corvo; while one was a path-breaking legal scholar, Luís Augusto Rebelo da Silva. The final two were both closely associated with the Lisbon Geographical Society and the Treaty of Berlin.

Keywords: Brazil; João de Andrade Corvo; João Pinheiro Chagas; Lisbon; Manuel Joaquim Pinheiro Chagas
