Meet D. Maria Ana of Bragança...

Maria Ana de Bragança was the Infanta of Portugal, daughter of Queen Maria II of Portugal and King Fernando II and sister of King Pedro V. She married at the age of 15 in 1859 to the then Prince and future King George of Saxony, earning the title of Hereditary Princess of Saxony.

After her marriage to Prince George of Saxony, he didn't make a good impression on her family, as he barely addressed his fiancée and was absent from an appearance at the theatre to which he had been invited. At that same appearance, the princess was seen crying. They had eight children, but Maria Ana lived an unhappy marriage, as her husband didn't live up to the expectations and qualities of the Portuguese infanta and her family.

Around 1883, her youngest son, Prince Albert of Saxony, fell seriously ill, which led Maria Ana to look after him for several months until he recovered. She died of exhaustion before her husband ascended the throne of Saxony. She was buried in the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Dresden, Germany.

Queen D. Estefânia, wife of D. Maria's brother, described her as: "a charming person, good, generous, remarkably down-to-earth for her age, without the slightest selfishness, respected and loved by all of us (...) George of Saxony found a real treasure".
