As Napoleon's army advanced on Lisbon, Crown Prince Joao, along with the entire royal family and court, fled to Brazil under the protection of the British Navy. This meticulously researched and engaging study sheds light on a little-known but momentous chapter of history to reveal how, by the time of his reluctant return to Portugal in 1821, this unprepossessing prince had transformed Brazil, having built roads, founded schools, established factories and set the colony on the road to independence. Slightly off-mint.
