Abstract

Belonging to a broad research, the article introduces a core stage in the diplomatic career of Martinho Teixeira Homem de Brederode de Cunha, a Portuguese diplomat who represented Portugal in Bucharest for 15 years. His monarchist political orientation made him prefer Romania to the republican Portugal, where he never returned. His first steps in the diplomatic career were made in the Belgian capital. Everything he learned there helped him in Tangier, Morocco, as Head of Mission. There, he defined himself as a diplomat and became familiar with all subtleties of the job during the Moroccan Crisis and the Algeciras Conference. A member of the aristocracy, Martinho de Brederode was involved in the most select circles in Tangier. There, he found everything on the confrontation between the interests of France, Spain, and Germany.

Keywords: Martinho de Brederode, Portugal, Romania, diplomacy
