Imperial Regalia of Brazil
The Imperial Regalia of Brazil consists of the Imperial Crowns: the Crown of Pedro II and the Crown of Pedro I; the Imperial Sceptre; the Imperial Orb; the Imperial Sword; and jewelry belonging to the Emperors and Empresses of Brazil. They were used until the abolition of the Brazilian monarchy in 1889. Most of the jewels have been displayed at the Imperial Museum of Brazil in Petrópolis and at the National Museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro since 1943. Other items are stored at the National Treasury in Brasília.
