Author
Abstract
This article aims at discussing the relationship between the second emperor of Brazil, Pedro dAlcântara, and his tutor of Semitic and oriental languages, the German orientalist Christian Friedrich Seybold (1859-1921). By reading the monarchs diaries we could find a huge amount of references to the German orientalist, which reveals, in a certain way, the importance of this tutor in d. Pedro IIs life. However, whereas Seybolds presence is frequently observed in the emperors diaries, strangely enough this close contact during five years was not taken into consideration by the emperors biographers, being summarized in some lines and sparse allusions. From a critical rereading of the sources, we attempt to bring to light new data for the bio-bibliographic study of Seybold who contributed actively to d. Pedro IIs intellectual life and who accompanied the emperor in exile until his last days of life.
