War of the Brothers

   Civil war in Portugal fought between the forces of absolutist monarchy and constitutionalist monarchy. Each side was headed and represented by one of two royal brothers, King Miguel I, who usurped the throne of young Maria II, and King Pedro IV, formerly emperor Pedro I of Brazil, who abdicated to restore his daughter Maria to the throne her uncle Miguel had purloined. In the end, the forces of Pedro triumphed, those of Miguel lost, and Miguel went into exile in Austria.
