The Arms of the Kings of Portugal

Roll of the Kings of Portugal

These are the dates for their reign, beginning to end. There are some cases where the end of the reign was not the end of their life, so I give the death date if I know it. I have tried to give some indication (where I can) of how they died (or ended their reign.)
ab. = abdicated,  kib. = killed in battle, as. = assassinated, ex. = executed, dep = deposed

This has got to be the most placid Royal House that europe knew during the medieval period. All but one of the kings die of natural causes, in their beds, usually at advanced ages! It's positively dull.
