John VI (Lisbon, May 13, 1767 – Lisbon, March 10, 1826). He was the King of Portugal (1816-1826); son of Peter III of Portugal (1717-1786) and Maria I of Portugal (1734-1816). Due to the madness of his mother, he practiced the Regency from 1792 to 1816. In 1807, facing the invasion of Portugal by the French troops, he moved the Court to Rio de Janeiro and remained in Brazil until 1821. He returned in 1821, after accepting the Constitution which was voted by the Courts of Portugal. But he lost Brazil, which was proclaimed independent in 1822 with his eldest son, Peter I of Brazil and IV of Portugal (1798-1834).
