Teresa Cristina was the daughter of the Duke of Calabria and she married the Emperor of Brazil when she was 21. (He was 17, it was an arranged marriage - a state marriage.) (It is believed that the Emperor received a picture of her before their marriage that was actually of a more beautiful woman. They then had to get dispensation from the Pope to marry because they were closely related.) After their marriage by proxy, the Emperor finally saw her - then immediately turned around and left. She wrote home: "I know my appearance is different from what has been announced. I will make every effort to live in such a way that nobody will be misled by my character. It will be my ambition to resemble the nature of Dona Leopoldina, my husband's mother, and to be a Brazilian with all my heart in everything I do."

Celito Medeiros: When Medeiros came to America, they thought to gather in the U.S., however there were 2 United States - USA & United States of Brazil. This was a great family problem! Today I am in Brazil & related to the Medeiros' of USA. We are also successful here!
