Valentine’s Day… Portuguese style!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if major personalities from Portuguese history had Tinder profiles? No?!
Well, I have! 😀

I mean, we all wish for love, care and attention, I suppose. How would these big historical figures deal with looking for love on the internet on the 21st century? What sort of personality would they have? If nothing else, I enjoyed poking a little fun at these “untouchable” serious personalities.

Please note that I am in no way glorifying these people. They all had good and bad things to their personalities: they were humans, just like you and me. The main idea is to make you laugh while tickling your curiosity and, hopefully, motivate you to research a bit about Portuguese history. What’s with Fernando Pessoa and ridiculous love letters, for example? Well, look it up! 😉

Here’s my selection of Portuguese historical figures for this Valentine’s day:

And, because I love you all so much, I also created a Valentine’s card for each of these personalities. You can donwload them and let these major Portuguese historical figures be your wingmen and women for today! 😉

I have zero design skills but I hope you’ll have as much fun with these as I had creating them!

Happy Valentine’s or, as we say in Portuguese, “Feliz dia de São Valentim” / “Feliz dia dos namorados”!


If my blog posts somehow make your day better, please consider buying me a coffee at I’ll get the “pastel de nata” myself. 🙂 

If you’re more of a PayPal sort of person there’s no problem with that:
