Sir William Clinton arrives in Portugal with a small army ostensibly to protect Portugal from a Spanish invasion, in practice to protect the Regency from the increasing pressure of the absolutists. Nothing happened of note and the Duke of Wellington, then Prime Minister decided to evacuate them in 1828. A mule which kicked and injured Clinton was much feted by D. Miguel’s followers.
The British Historical Society of Portugal is a Society with about 250 members and has as its object to recover, preserve and collate as much as possible of the history of the British in Portugal, and to promote interest in the History of Anglo-Portuguese relations.
