Human statues of the Count of Tomar, King Felipe I and Queen Maria I

This is the series of the Festival of Human Statues of 2010 in Tomar, which I have been publishing in this photoblog since I started it. The first Human Statue is of the Count of Tomar, which I believe to be António Bernardo da Costa Cabral. He later became the Marquis of Tomar and there’s now a street in his honour. The second human statue represents King Felipe I of Portugal who was also Felipe II of Spain. Portugal had lost its independence and Felipe I, who was the son of a Portuguese princess and the Spanish king, ruled the Iberian Peninsula in the 16th century, from the Castle of Tomar. The third statue represents Queen Maria I, who was proclaimed the Queen of Portugal and Brazil in 1815. For a while she ruled from Brazil while Portugal was being invaded by Napoleon french army.
