Teodósio (? – 1563)

Teodósio became the 5th Duke of Bragança after his father’s death in 1532. On December 9, 1540 he also became the Head-Captain of the Minho and Trás-os-Montes provinces.

A Bull by Pope Pius IV (1560) granted Teodósio the authorization for him to create a university in the Convent of St. Augustine in Vila Viçosa (Alentejo). Such university was to have the same privileges of the renowned University of Coimbra, but the project wasn’t successful.
