A revolution has broken out against King John VI of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves in Portugal.

The revolution was actually pretty much confined to Brazil, and led to a political and territorial split in the Royal House of Braganza where Joao VI's daughter, Maria II, and her direct descendants carried on as Kings and Queens of Portugal and the Algarves, as well as all Portugese colonies in Africa and Asia, until the overthrow of the Portuguese monarchy in 1910, while her brother, Pedro I, whom the rebels in Brazil rallied around, chose him and his direct descendants as Emperors of Brazil until the coup on the Brazilian monarchy in 1889.
