A Son for Queen Amalia of Portugal

November 15, 1889

News organizations are reporting that Queen Amalia of Portugal "gave birth to a son today."   Both the queen and her infant son "are doing well."

This is the third child for the former Princess Amélie of Orléans and King Carlos of Portugal.   The first child, Crown Prince Luiz Filipe was born in March 1887.    A daughter, Maria Anna, died shortly after her birth in December 1887.

King Carlos and Queen Amalia were married at Lisbon on May 22, 1886.  He succeeded to the throne only last month following the death of his father, King Luiz, on October 19.
