The article draws an outline of the Portuguese constitutional evolution through the Monarquia liberal.(1820-1910). In the origin, a liberal revolution whose often radical phraseology combined with a basically conservative perception of the political world. Afterwards, a rather monarchical Charter (1826), which nevertheless was able to frame substantially different political agendas: from a restauracionist program, stressing the role of the royal prerogative, till a socialist-corporatist agenda, as that proposed by the most radical wings of the political establishment during the last decades of the regime.
