Born today 373 years ago, at Vila Viçosa, Infante D.Catarina daughter of duke of Bragança ( future king D. João IV) and his wife D. Luisa de Gusmão.
If some say that she had a submissive temperament due to her almost conventual education , others would say that she was rather witty... Either way, the truth is that this princess who will take, after the death of her older sisters, the title of Princesa da Beira, will end up by marrying with Charles II Stuart, king of the restaured England in 1662... She will become on of the great ladies of her time!
