Viva Saldanha, 1º Cônsul!

What if D. Pedro, 1st Emperor of Brazil - and then plainly presenting himself as "Duke of Braganza" - had lost the Civil War that opposed him to his brother D.

After some years of Absolutist rule by D. Miguel, and inspired by the 1848´s Spring of Nations, the Portuguese radical left wing and moderate liberals could have found a new ideal to gather around: the Republic.
Waiting for the leadership of General Saldanha - recalled from exile by the Republican Provisional Junta - here are the first recruits of my fictional "Volunteers of the Republic" Regiment:
