The aim of this paper is to study Catherine of Braganza's wedding festivities and to frame them in the historical context of the dissolution of the Spanish-Portuguese Union in 1640. In order to better understand one of the models that served as inspiration for these ceremonies, the focus of the analysis will be centred on the wedding between Maria Theresa of Spain and Louis XIV of France, as well as on the pro-Restoration discourse used by the House of Braganza.
