Dom Pedro II (1825 - 1891) was the second and last monarch of the Empire of Brazil, reigning the country for 58 years. He was born in Rio de Janeiro, the youngest son of Emperor Dom Pedro I who quickly abdicated: at the age of five, Pedro II was already Emperor, growing up with the desire to support his country and the Brazilian people.

During his reign, Dom Pedro II strongly developed Brazil, which became an emerging power. Political stability, the abolition of slavery despite opposition and freedom of expression made him a monarch admired internationally, by personalities such as, for example, the scientist Charles Darwin, the writer Friedrich Nietzsche and the composer Richard Wagner. Despite his popularity, he was deposed and spent the last two years of his life in exile in Europe.

This charter signed by Dom Pedro II, with his large bold signature, appoints Felippe José Pereira Leal, Imperial Counselor, Supervisor of his majesty the Emperor, and ambassador of Peru, as plenipotentiary to negotiate and draw up an agreement with the Peruvian plenipotentiary on "the border with the empire in the region of the Içá or Putumayo river". It is also signed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Viscount de Caravellos.

Dom Pedro II is the Brazilian personality most sought after by Brazilian collectors.
