Abstract

VIEIRA JUNIOR, Antonio Otaviano  and  BARROSO, Daniel Souza. Stories of "movements": Portuguese boats and population in the 18th-century Amazon. Rev. bras. estud. popul. [online]. 2010, vol.27, n.1, pp. 193-210. ISSN 0102-3098.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-30982010000100011.

In order to better organize the understanding of the effects of the presence of the Portuguese Royal Family in Brazil beyond Rio de Janeiro, this article discusses the period of the Brazilian reign of King John VI (1808-1821), in the Amazon region. The focus of the analysis is the in-and-out of Portuguese vessels and the migratory processes between Portugal and the then Province of Pará.

Keywords : 19th-century Amazon; Migratory movements; Population in Pará.
