Count of neiva


Count of Neiva (in Portuguese Conde de Neiva) is a Portuguese title granted, in 1373 by King Fernando I of Portugal, to Dom Gonçalo Teles de Meneses, brother of Queen Leonor Telles de Menezes.

Dom Gonçalo was also Lord of Faria, and that is why some authors, uncorrectly, called him Count of Neiva and Faria.

Later, the County was granted to Fernando of Braganza and when Fernando became 2nd Duke of Braganza (1461), Count of Neiva became a subsidiary title of the House of Braganza.
