Portugal reclaimed its autonomy in 1640 when the then Duke of Braganza was installed as King Joao IV. However, the consequent Restoration War against Spain lasted until 1668]

[Pedro II was King of Portugal from 1683 until his death in 1706. Mail to Brazil in this period is very scarce. Until gold was discovered early in the 18th century, the Brazilian economy was largely based on sugar and slaves]
