Brazilian nobility

The Last Empire Ball, on 9 November 1889 at Ilha Fiscal by Aurélio de Figueiredo.

The Brazilian nobility (Portuguese: nobreza do Brasil) refers to the titled aristocrats and fidalgo people and families recognized by the Kingdom of Brazil and later, by the Empire of Brazil, dating back to the early 19th century, when Brazil ceased to be a colony of the Kingdom of Portugal. It held official status until 1889, when a military coup d'état overthrew the monarchy and established the First Brazilian Republic.
