Catherine of BraganzaCatarina de Bragança

Catarina de Bragança, in a 1662-1672 miniature by Samuel Cooper, and painting by Dirck Stoop, from around the same time frame: the monarch after which the borough of Queens is thought to be named after, in New York City. Not all agree on this matter, but one fact is clear: she was the wife of Charles II, who in 1683 was the legal owner Brooklyn and Queens. According to wikipedia, “her large dowry brought the port cities of Tangier and Bombay to British control.” She is also believed to have introduced the custom of tea-drinking to England, a custom Portugal adopted from contacts with Asia in the previous century.
