Piano brought to Portugal by the composer and pianist Franz Liszt (1811-1886), during his passage through Lisbon in 1845. It was offered to Queen D. Maria II (1819-1853), who donated it to Manuel Inocêncio dos Santos (1802-1887), the music teacher of the Infantes. It was one of the first modern pianos to be seen in Portugal.
