Privilege and social dynamics: to be noble in the captaincy of Goiás

This project intends to analyze the status of the Portuguese nobility and its reflexes in the mining areas that broke with the stigma of born outside the Kingdom and created a nobility of privileges for services rendered in the backlands of the Guayazes, erected in new social bases in the late 18th century and beginning of the 19th century. The research will be done through requests for mercy and charters.
