Audio Preview

Giuseppe Troni

This portrait of Queen Maria I was painted by the royal painter of the time (from 1785 to 1810), Giuseppe Troni. Troni studied in Rome and later produced paintings for the Naples court, before he came to Lisbon to work for the royal family and nobility. The painting portrays Maria dressed in the fashionable attire of her era. She‚Äôs probably around 42 years old, which was roughly when she ascended to the throne after her father's death ‚Äď becoming the unchallenged queen of Portugal. During this time, the Portuguese people affectionately refer to her as "Pia" because of her deep devotion to piety and religion.
