ABSTRACT
This article discusses author Ana Miranda's historical novel "O retrato do rei" and its themes of power and independence in 18th century Brazil. The author describes Miranda's use of portraiture as a symbol of power over the Brazilian people on behalf of the Portuguese king. The thefts of the portrait, which serve to question the king's authority, and the relationship of the novel to Brazilian history leading up to its independence, are also analyzed.
