A 24 de Julho de 1580, durante a preparação para a esperada invasão espanhola, D. António foi aclamado rei de Portugal pelo povo, no castelo de Santarém. D. António pedira ao povo que o aclamasse apenas regedor e defensor do reino, mas já o povo rejubilava. É aclamado também em Lisboa, Setúbal e em numerosos outros lugares. No entanto, um mês mais tarde, a 25 de Agosto, as suas forças são derrotadas na batalha de Alcântara pelas do duque de Alba. Segundo documento de cuja cópia está no perfil de Pedro Gomes, seria filho legitimo de D. Luís, duque de Beja o qual teria casado em segredo com Violante Gomes filha do dito Pedro Gomes.


Illegitimate son of Luis, duke of Beja, and briefly (for approximately 20 days in 1580) king of Portugal. After his defeat at the Battle of Alcântara, António was obliged to flee to France. After an aborted attempt to conquer the Azores, he went into impoverished exile in France and England, before dying.

Antonio was born in 1531. He was the son of Unknown Gómez de Portugal. He passed away in 1595.
