Peter III (or Pedro III (); 5 July 1717 – 25 May 1786) became King of the Kingdom of Portugal and the Algarves by the accession of his wife and niece Queen Maria I in 1777, and co-reigned alongside her until his death.


Peter was the younger son of John V of Portugal and Maria Anna of Austria. Peter was a younger brother of Joseph I of Portugal. Their maternal grandparents were Leopold I, Holy Roman Emperor, and Eleonor Magdalene of Neuburg, sister of Queen Maria Sofia of Portugal.

Peter married Maria, Princess of Brazil, in 1760, at which time she was the heir to the throne then held by his brother Joseph I. According to custom, Peter thus became prince of Brazil in right of his wife. They had six children, of whom the eldest surviving son succeeded Maria as John VI on her death in 1816.

Peter made no attempt to participate in government affairs, spending his time hunting or in religious exercises.
