Once I Was King by Corinne Wandenburg

The novel is dedicated to the last King of Portugal, King Manuel II. He was young, handsome, and capable, but not understood by his people. He came to the throne during an unfortunate period in the governance of the Portuguese State, for as the second son, he had not been prepared to rule. He was a free spirit, creative and peaceful, drawn to nature and beautiful things. He always hated politics and its devious workings, and he could not abide traitors. He suffered much in his life, losing both his father and his brother who were assassinated; subsequently he relinquished the throne of Portugal following a coup d'état. Despite his exile in England, Manuel remained passionately loyal to his country which lingered eternally in his heart. He left his entire estate to Portugal through the foundation that would carry on his family's name and serve as a testament forever to his love of his country.
