About D. João II
João II (Portuguese pronunciation: ; English: John II) ( 3 March 1455 – 25 October 1495), the Perfect Prince (Port. o Príncipe Perfeito), was the thirteenth king of Portugal and the Algarves. He is known for reestablishing the power of the Portuguese throne, reinvigorating its economy, and renewing its exploration of Africa and the Orient.Born in Lisbon, the son of King Afonso V of Portugal by his wife, Isabel of Coimbra, princess of Portugal, John II succeeded his father in 1477 when the king retired to a monastery, but only became king in 1481. As a prince, John II accompanied his father in the campaigns in northern Africa and was made a knight by him after the victory in Arzila in 1471. In 1473, he married Leonor of Viseu, Infanta of Portugal and his first cousin. Even at a young age, he was not popular among the peers of the kingdom since he was immune to external influence and appeared to despise intrigue. The nobles (including particularly Fernando II, the Duke of Braganza) were afraid of his future policies as king.
