Background: Following its heyday as a world power during the 15th and 16th centuries , Portugal lost much of its wealth and status with the destruction of Lisbon in a 1755 earthquake , occupation during the Napoleonic Wars , and the independence in 1822 of Brazil as a colony. A 1910 revolution deposed the monarchy; for most of the next six decades , repressive governments ran the country. In 1974 , a left-wing military coup installed broad democratic reforms.
