Autor(es) Filipa de Jesus de Portugal

In English

Request letter from dona Filipa de Jesus de Portugal, a nun, to Pablo de Mendonça, a monk.

The author asks the addressee to intercede on her behalf so that the king allows her to return to Portugal.

Dona Filipa de Portugal was the daughter of Dom António prior do Crato, claimant of the Portuguese thrown during the succession crisis after the death of Dom Sebastião in 1578. When Felipe II of Spain was crowned king of Portugal, he allegedly persecuted the daughters of Dom António, arresting them in Castilian convents.
