INHAMBUPE, Antonio Luiz Pereira da Cunha (een-ya-m-boo'-pay), marquis of, Brazilian statesman, born in Bahia, 6 April, 1760; died in Rio Janeiro, 18 September, 1837. He studied law, was graduated at Coimbra, and in 1802 was appointed by the government district judge of the supreme court of Rio Janeiro. When the royal court of Portugal retired to Brazil in 1807, the regent, Don Juan, consulted him in the most difficult questions. He was appointed chancellor for the province of Bahia in 1808, and in 1809-'15 was governor of the province of Rio Janeiro, afterward serving on the council of the treasury, the commission to codify the naval laws, and the council for commerce, navigation, and agriculture. At the outset of the revolution of February, 1821, in Portugal, John VI., not desiring to leave Brazil, decided to send the crown-prince, Pedro, to Europe, and called an assembly of the deputies of the Brazilian cities to Rio Janeiro, appointing da Cunha one of the members of the commission to execute this decree. When the king was obliged to sail for Portugal, da Cunha was appointed a member of the advisory commission to the prince regent; but in the subsequent movement for independence he took part in favor of his country, and in 1823 was appointed by the emperor counsellor of state, and president of the commission to organize the constitution of the empire. In the same year he was elected to the senate, and appointed its president, but left the chair twice on being called to organize a ministry. On the abdication of Pedro I., 7 April, 1831, the Marquis of Inhambupe was appointed president of the council of regency during the minority of his son. He accepted against his wishes, and as soon as public order and tranquillity were assured he resigned and retired to private life.
