My dear Countess,

Thank you for your beautiful letters and congratulations. It's from this
Castello currently ours that I write to you. The prince
will write to (Lass?) about you. Accept everyone
I miss you so much, my dear countess!
Your friend with a lot of heart

Isabel Countess d'Eu

In 1905, Princess Isabel lived in exile in France, more precisely in Castle d'Eu, in Normandy, together with her husband, the Count d'Eu. Despite her distance from Brazil after the proclamation of the Republic in 1889, Isabel remained actively involved with the Brazilian community in Europe. Known for her strong sense of duty and her patronage of the arts, Isabel remained an influential figure, cultivating a rich cultural life and participating in charitable activities.

This letter is a simple testimony to the exile of the royal family. It was written in Castelo d'Eu, in France, which gives us an idea of ​​the environment and context in which Isabel found herself. The text is not long or elaborate, but it conveys genuine feelings of gratitude and affection, which, in my opinion, reflects the true personality of the Princess, known for her humility and kindness.
