Francisco da Veiga Beirão


Francisco da Veiga Beirão

Francisco António da Veiga Beirão (Lisbon, July 24, 1841 — Paço de Arcos, November 11, 1916), commonly known as Francisco da Veiga Beirão (pron. IPA2|fɾɐ̃'siʃku dɐ 'vɐigɐ bɐi'ɾɐ̃ũ) or just Veiga Beirão, was a Portuguese politician of the late period of the Constitutional Monarchy. He served as President of the Ministry (Prime Minister), being the second last before the October 5 republican coup d'état that established the Portuguese First Republic. He was a professor at the Industrial Institute and president of Lawyers Association of Lisbon. He was also a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences and of the "Institut de Droit International" and the "Real Academia de Jurisprudência y Legislación de Madrid". He had a law degree in law, from the University of Coimbra.

He started his political life in the Reformist Party and was a deputy in the "Cortes" from 1880 to 1904. However he maintained a certain distance from party-politics. He also served as Minister of Justice (February 29, 1886 — January 14, 1890) and of Foreign Affairs (1898). He was the author of the regulating code for the creation and functioning of commercial societies in Portugal (1888).

In 1909, on December 22, he was named President of the Ministry (Prime Minister) by young king Emmanuel II of Portugal. However, his government would not last much as following a political scandal related with the "Crédito Predial" Bank that implicated several of his ministers. He resigned in June 26, 1910. He would be followed by António Teixeira de Sousa, the last Prime Minister of the constitutional monarchy.

After the proclamation of the Portuguese Republic on October 5, 1910 he abandoned the political life and continued working as a lawyer and attorney.
