The East India Company and the Portuguese loss of the Provoncia do Norte

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Anglo-Portuguese relationship in Asia was marked by cooperation and antagonism, in a connection that can be entitled as pragmatic, flexible and adaptable to the circumstances. This complex and multifaced interaction had in the Portuguese-Maratha wars of the 1730s a paradigmatic example of how it was managed the frontier proximity between Bombay and the Estado da India. In this article, we aim to analyze the dynamics of the Anglo-Portuguese interaction in the particular context of the Maratha attacks to the Provoncia do Norte and to frame them in the long relationship process initiated with the cession of Bombay.
