Excerpt:

 

The period covered, 1750-1815, is one in which important events occurred that had a significant and permanent impact on history: the Napoleonic War (1793-1815), the Independence of America, and, especially for Portugal and Brazil, the journey of the Royal Family to Rio de Janeiro in 1807/08. The paper discusses the role of the two navies in this period and their principal activities, and then discusses the men, their ships and the life on board.
