The author of the pamphlet, ‘Quem he o legitimo Rei de Portugal?,’ according to Innocêncio, was Paulo Midosi, an ardent supporter of the constitutionalist cause then exiled in London, who wrote it first in English then translated it into Portuguese.   Macedo in 1828 was already a sick man and comments that he wrote the work to refute the pamphlet on the instructions of the Chief of Police, in support of D. Miguel and dedicated to the Portuguese nation, to be distributed free of charge to all judicial districts and councils.
