This chapter examines the reactionary political mobilization that followed the threat of revolution in Brazil during the period from 1831 to 1837. It discusses the abdication of Dom Pedro I and suggests that there was a broad political consensus supporting constitutional monarchy since the start of the mobilization associated with the independence movement in the early 1820s. It contends that most of those who participated in the mobilization were liberals who accepted or promoted the idea of a monarch constrained by law and governing with a representative parliament. This chapter also considers the crisis over constitutional reform and the associated threat of restoration.
