Coimbra University endured turbulent times in the early 19th century, in common with the rest of Portugal.   Most of the students supported the liberal ideas of D. Pedro, against the reactionary views of his brother, D. Miguel, and organized themselves to form battalion of academic volunteers to defend his rights (see Elísio Estanque, Do activismo à indiferença : movimentos estudantis em Coimbra, p. 28).   In this work D. Pedro’s supporters pour scorn on their critics and the University Rector.
