Hino da Independência


Já podeis da Pátria filhos,
Ver contente a mãe gentil;
Já raiou a liberdade
No horizonte do Brasil
Já raiou a liberdade,
Já raiou a liberdade
No horizonte do Brasil.
Brava gente brasileira!
Longe vá temor servil
Ou ficar a Pátria livre
Ou morrer pelo Brasil;
Ou ficar a Pátria livre,
Ou morrer pelo Brasil.

Os grilhões que nos forjava
Da perfídia astuto ardil,
Houve mão mais poderosa,
Zombou deles o Brasil;
Houve mão mais poderosa
Houve mão mais poderosa
Zombou deles o Brasil.

Brava gente brasileira!
Longe vá temor servil
Ou ficar a Pátria livre
Ou morrer pelo Brasil;
Ou ficar a Pátria livre,
Ou morrer pelo Brasil.
Não temais ímpias falanges
Que apresentam face hostil;
Vossos peitos, vossos braços
São muralhas do Brasil;
Vossos peitos, vossos braços
Vossos peitos, vossos braços
São muralhas do Brasil.
Brava gente brasileira!
Longe vá temor servil
Ou ficar a Pátria livre
Ou morrer pelo Brasil;
Ou ficar a Pátria livre,
Ou morrer pelo Brasil.

Parabéns, ó brasileiros!
Já, com garbo juvenil,
Do universo entre as nações
Resplandece a do Brasil;
Do universo entre as nações
Do universo entre as nações
Resplandece a do Brasil.

Brava gente brasileira!
Longe vá temor servil
Ou ficar a Pátria livre
Ou morrer pelo Brasil;
Ou ficar a Pátria livre,
Ou morrer pelo Brasil.

The Empire of Brazil was a political entity that comprised present-day Brazil under the rule of Emperors Pedro I and his son Pedro II. Founded in 1822, it was replaced by a republic in 1889.
As a result of the Napoleonic occupation of Portugal, the Portuguese royal family, the Braganzas, went into exile in Brazil, the most important of the Portuguese colonies. What followed was a period when Brazil enjoyed self-government under the Braganza dynasty, with no reference to the authorities at Lisbon. This nurtured a distaste for the idea of returning to status quo ante upon the overthrow of Napoleon's influence over Portugal. Therefore, Brazil came to be independent of Portugal, albeit under the rule of a member of the Portuguese royal family.

After its independence from the Portuguese on September 7, 1822, Brazil became a monarchy, the Empire of Brazil, which lasted until the establishment of the republican government on November 15, 1889. Two emperors occupied the throne in that period: Pedro I, from 1822 to 1831; and Pedro II, from 1831 to 1889. Also, King João VI of Portugal held the title of Emperor of Brazil as stipulated by the treaty recognizing Brazilian independence.

The end of the Empire in 1889 and the foundation of the republic was a reactionary development following the abolition of slavery in 1888, which had created a serious threat to the interests of the economic and political oligarchy.
