1826: Napoleon Bonaparte is dead, the Congress of Vienna's work is done, and there is peace in Europe. However, in Portugal there is the scent of civil war in the air following the death of King John VI. And with Spain, and perhaps even France, threatening to take sides, England's historic treaty with Portugal is set to be invoked. Newly returned from India, Matthew Hervey joins a party of officers sent to make an assessment and lend support to the Portuguese regent.
