This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the role of slavery and the Conservative Party in the history of the Brazilian monarchy during the period from 1831 to 1871. It provides a reconstruction of the historical process in relation to the reactionary legacy of 1873–1842. It discusses the reconstruction of the state, the impact of the monarch and the corruption of representative government and the struggle over state autonomy. This chapter argues that abolition was inextricably linked to the relationship between state and society and that the division and defeat of the Conservative party represented a political victory for an authoritarian state.

Keywords:   Brazilian monarchy, slavery, Conservative Party, state autonomy, abolition, authoritarian state, reactionary legacy, representative government
