The Lei Áurea (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈlej ˈawɾjɐ], Golden Law), adopted on May 13, 1888, was the law that abolished slavery in Brazil.
It was preceded by the Rio Branco Law of September 28, 1871 (a.k.a. "the Law of Free Birth"), which freed all children born to slave parents, and by Saraiva-Cotegipe Law (also known as "the Law of Sexagenarians"), of September 28, 1885, that freed slaves when they reached the age of 60.
The Lei Áurea had only two articles:
Article 1: From this date, slavery is declared abolished in Brazil.
Article 2: All dispositions to the contrary are revoked.medicare part d4life

Brazil and the Algarves and enjoyed self-government under the Braganza dynasty with no reference to the authorities in Lisbon. This nurtured a distaste for the idea of returning to status quo ante upon the overthrow of Napoleon's influence over Portugal. Brazil came to be independent of Portugal albeit under the rule of a member of the Portuguese royal family.Free iPadløbehjul
