3355 – A Palace for the Dead

Being an Archbishop in Lisbon would earn you a final rest in one of those boxes. Two rows of them in an otherwise empty room, that does not sound like a prospect to die for 🙂

Being the illegitimate son of a king and Portugal’s High Inquisitor you had better cards. This is the tomb of Dom José de Bragança, son of João V. Still, as we’ll see, in order to have someone to weep for you, you had to be a recognized member of the royal family.
