 Guardian Unlimited Books | By genre | Review: Empire Adrift by Patrick Wilcken
Finally there is Dom Pedro, their son (probably - his paternity was disputed), who grew up in Brazil an unrestrained philanderer, handsome, half-educated, urinating and defecating without embarrassment in front of his troops, and referring to his mother ungallantly as a "bitch", but who became, in the end, the standard-bearer of Brazilian independence.
But Dom João, though terrified by the thunderstorms that swept across the Guanabara Bay, quickly took to life in the new world, overseeing the rebuilding of the capital and the establishment of Rio's botanical garden, the latter, in Wilcken's phrase, a laboratory of empire that rivalled Kew.
And in 1822, with Dom João in Portugal beset by demands for constitutional reform, and anti-colonial, republican movements gathering force in the rest of Latin America, the young regent made a unilateral declaration of independence from Portugal.
