King José (1714-1777), son of King João V, married to Queen Mariana Vitória, daughter of Philiph V of Spain. His activity as ruler can be defined by the consolidation of central power and by the antagonism relative to the prior reign, which earned him some internal opposition and the assassination attempt in 1759.
