The death of King Dom John V led to José I becoming the King of Portugal in 1750. His reign was eventful with him overseeing the deadly 1755 earthquake in Lisbon as well as a Spanish-French invasion of Portugal in 1762.

King José I refused and asked for military support from the British. The Portugese and British alliance was victorious. José I died in 1777 which relayed the throne to his eldest daughter, Queen Dona Maria I
