In the costume collection, consisting mainly of objects related to the daily life of the Portuguese Royal Family and of the Ajuda Palace in the second half of the 19th century, the two royal mantles stand out, whose symbolic value as regalia items of the Portuguese Crown is significant. The military uniforms of King Luís and King Carlos and of the Princes are also noteworthy, as evidence for historical experiences and facts, a few of them ichnographically documented. The collection also includes pieces of civilian costume from King Louis, Queen Maria Pia and the Princes. Among the Queen’s utilitarian objects the costume accessories and the interesting fan collection in particular stand out. The (incomplete) costume set of the Royal Household employees also witness the everyday life in the Palace.
