Abstract

The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal and Europe and China. This period was equally striking for Macao's history and for its quality as an international port of commerce and a port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors - Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers. in Macau and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.
