Dona Isabel, nicknamed "the Redemptress," was the heir presumptive to the throne of the Empire of Brazil, bearing the title of Princess Imperial. Isabel was born in Rio de Janeiro, the eldest daughter of Emperor Dom Pedro II and Dona Teresa Cristina of the Two Sicilies and thus a member of the Brazilian branch of the House of Braganza. Isabel was born at 6 p.m. on 29 July 1846 in Rio de Janeiro's Pa o de S o Crist v o (Palace of Saint Christopher). She was the daughter of Brazil's Emperor Pedro II and his wife Teresa Cristina. On 15 November the infant princess was baptized in an elaborate ceremony in Igreja da Gl ria (Glory Church). Her godparents, both represented by proxy, were her uncle, King Ferdinand II of Portugal, and her maternal grandmother Mar a Isabella of Spain.
