Princess Sisi of Austria

Very popular with the Austrian people. Sisi was born on Christmas Eve in 1837 as the second daughter of Duke Maximilian and Duchess Ludovika in Bavaria, Germany. In 1853 she met her cousin Emperor Franz Joseph, who was going to marry her sister Helene. Franz Joseph of Austria fell in love with Sisi immediately and decided to marry her instead of her sister. They married, when Sisi was 16 years old. The marriage did not work out: Sisi was an independent girl and totally unprepared for the strict protocol at court, an ambitious stepmother and a busy husband who struggled to fight revolutionary and separatist tendencies in the Habsburg Empire. The court society of Vienna was making fun of her, […]

Maria Theresa

She became Empress of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The 13/05/1717 was a day Austrian history will never forget, it was the day the one and only female Empress in the Habsburg dynasty ever was born. Even at the young age of 23, she became Empress of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. She occupied this position for 40 years.

Maria Theresa is most known for making education compulsory but also establishing the potato as staple which was a great service for the Austrian society. The “Mrs. Emperor”, as she was called by the Austrians, was […]

Princess of the Netherlands, Princess of Oranje-Nassau, Duchess of Mecklenburg and Princess of Lippe-Biesterfeld.

Tabaco aquecido contém mais riscos

Os produtos de tabaco aquecido “contêm nicotina, causando dependência nos seus utilizadores, para além de estarem presentes outros produtos adicionados que não existem no tabaco e que são frequentemente aromatizados”, lê-se no documento divulgado nesta terça-feira.

Wladyslaw III of Poland

According to a Portuguese legend, the Polish king didn’t die in Varna but he settled in Madeira. Wladyslaw Warnenczyk was King of Poland, Hungary, and Croatia until his death at the age of 20, at the Battle of Varna in 1444. He was the first-born son of Wladyslaw Jagiello who was the founder of the Jagiellonian dynasty. The battle of Varna was a decisive Ottoman victory over the crusader alliance, led by Wladyslaw Warnenczyk and John Hunyadi-voivode of Transylvania, a leading Hungarian military and political figure. The young king was killed while personally leading his own 500-strong royal Polish heavy cavalry company to directly attack the Sultan who was protected by the guard cavalry and formidable Janissary infantry. The Janissaries […]

The golden age of Poland

Zygmunt moved Poland’s capital from Cracow to Warsaw “The Golden Age of Poland” occurred during the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, formally, the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the largest and most populous countries in Europe at that time. In its largest territorial extent, the Commonwealth covered almost 1 million square km and sustained a multi-ethnic population of 11 million. Religious freedom was guaranteed by the Warsaw Confederation in 1537, which made the country one of the most tolerant. Another interesting fact is that between 1573–1795, kings to the Polish throne were selected in so-called “free elections”, disrespecting the rule of dynastic succession. The first free election took place after the last monarch of Jagiellonian dynasty died […]

Henry II of France

The twenty-fifth Capetian King of France and the son of Francis I. He is the perfect representative of the figure of a French Renaissance monarch. Indeed, under his reign (from 1547 to 1559), a lot of great writers had the opportunity to enrich the classical literature of the country. We can think for example at Montaigne, Ronsard, Du Bellay and many more. It is also at that time that the new creative and artistic movement of La Pleiade emerged. When Henry was very young, he was made the prisoner of Emperor Charles Quint, being exchanged for his father’s freedom. He is released four years later. At the age of fourteen, he is married to Catherine of Medicis with who he […]

Mapas mostram mundo do século XVIII

Documentos estiveram esquecidos durante anos no sótão do museu. Agora foram recuperados e expostos Para contar a última parte da história dos cinco mapas de Jean Baptiste Nolin II que o Museu da Ciência da Universidade de Coimbra (UC) colocou em exposição no início deste ano, tem que se regressar a 2006. Para se contar a primeira parte do percurso dos cinco documentos ilustrados que representam o globo terrestre, África, América, Ásia e Europa, tem que se voltar bem mais atrás, a meados do século XVIII. Pelo meio, há que considerar alguma margem de incerteza. É desconhecida a data e o meio através do qual chegaram a Coimbra, mas calcula-se que os mapas datados de 1740 tenham sido enrolados e […]

The famous Royal Palace

The first Dutch historical and cultural monument of the Golden Age. The Royal Palace of Amsterdam is a palace on the Dam in the center of Amsterdam. Nowadays the palace is used by the Royal Family for reception occasions and exhibitions. The Palace was built in the style of the Dutch Classicism between 1648 and 1665 as a city hall and was designed by the architect Jacob van Campen. It cost around 8,5 million guilders. This was a lot of money, even during the 17th century well known as the Golden Age. Until the year of 1808, it served as a city hall. After that, the building was offered as a palace for King Lodewijk Napoleon. In 1813 the palace […]

Notre-Dame of Amiens

The Cathedral of Amiens is known as the vastest one in France. In the heart of a rich agricultural region of Northern France, the City of Amiens developed itself along the valley of the Somme. The city had during the medieval period a great influence. Indeed, the beginning of the construction of the Cathedral in 1220 highlighted the large prosperity of the Diocese at the time. The edification was quite fast. By the end of the Thirteenth Century, the building was almost complete. By this fact, Notre-Dame of Amiens offers an architectural uniqueness which is missing in most of its contemporary rivals. Incidentally, the Cathedral mixed simultaneously flamboyant and rayonnant Gothic styles. It became thus a source of inspiration for […]

Cubus: a giant grey square

Squares are not only for playing poker! In a town near to where I live in Bregenz, there is a House called Cubus, the Cubus is a giant grey square. This square is used as a museum for all kind of arts. Mostly artists of the new art wave expose their art in there. This interesting building was built in 1978 with the purpose of being a museum of modern arts. I chose this building because for me it is the most and best-known house of modern arts around. I have got to be honest, the arts are not my favorite type of creative outlets, but even though the couple of times I was there due to school trips, this […]

Schloss Schönbrunn in Vienna

It is nearly the only example of Austrian Rococo style It was built as the main summer residence of the Habsburg rulers and is located in Hietzing, Vienna. The Baroque Palace has about 1441 rooms and is one of the most important architectural, cultural and historical monuments in Austria. In 1569, King Maximilian II bought the place where the palace is now to use it for hunting. One year later the hunting lodge was built. Nearly 100 years later, King Leopold I assigned his son Joseph I, to build a new palace. In 1688 a plan was made, which would even excel the palace of Versailles. But it would be much too expensive and so in 1700, a much smaller […]

Centre Georges Pompidou

The controversial architecture of the building. The Centre Georges Pompidou is a building in Paris, in the Beaubourg area. This building is known for its atypical architecture, it was designed by Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano. In this building, we can find the musée National d’Art Moderne, a Library and the IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique). This building was built in 1977 and named after the French President Georges Pompidou from 1969 to 1974. The project was decided by President Georges Pompidou but the idea of multicultural complex came from André Malraux in the 1960s because Paris needed a new place for art and literature. The architecture of this building is controversial, people love it or hate it. […]
