WHO WAS THE QUEEN D. ESTEFÂNIA?
a heart to earth and a spirit to heaven. these were the words the royal prince, and king, d. pedro v, used to describe his wife.
When it was first suggested that it was time King D. Pedro V to chose a wife, he became doubtful and apprehensive, and although he knew he needed a Queen to share the burden of the Royal duties, his rigid temper made it hard to find a suitable candidate.
It was his aunt, Queen Victoria of England, who thought of young Estefânia (Queen Stephanie), a member of the Prussian Royal Family, and daughter of Prince Karl Anton of Hohenzollern Sigmaringen, gifted with a purity and sweetness of character that immediately captured the heart of the King.
Two truly pure and devoted souls as they were, legend has it that they were often seen strolling in the palace gardens while holding hands, a romance that could only end as tragically as it did. Just 14 months after their wedding, Queen Stephanie died of diphtheria, casting a lifelong shadow over the spirit of D. Pedro V.
Stephanie was loved by all who knew her. The short year she spent in Portugal was enough to leave a strong and vivid mark in this country’s history. In Lisbon, there’s a neighborhood and a children’s hospital named after her, showing her true devotion and commitment to people and children in need.
