Extracted from text ... RECENT CHANGES IN BRAZILIAN CONSTITUTIONAL LAW The aim of this paper is to give a brief overview of constitutional life in Brazil. In the last 183 years of its history, Brazil went through much turbulence and had eight constitutions.

In 1808 the Portuguese Royal Family had to escape from Napoleonic troops that invaded Portugal and came to Brazil.
