This paper deals with the rich library of D. Teodósio, duke of Bragança. We will analyse it under two points of view. The first one is its insertion within all the assets of the duke, known by the post-mortem inventory. The second one is the dimension of this library in comparison with other aristocratic and royal libraries of the time. We can conclude that, with the exception of the huge Fernando Colon's library, the duke's library was, no doubt, one of the biggest libraries of the Renaissance period.
