The image of d. Pedro I in the French press during the period he lived in Paris (August 1831 to January 1832) was essential to the success he has achieved in seeking support for the expedition to retake the crown with D. D. Maria II usurped by Miguel. Thanks to the efforts of scholars from Brazil, a considerable amount of information about the country has already circulated in Europe. To the liberal character who d. Pedro gave the Brazilian political model that would guarantee the support of the French Liberals, joined mythical aspects of his career and the country where he lived. The familiarity with d. Pedro attended all, nobles and commoners would also be an important factor for achieving membership to the cause of d. Maria.
