    Hey guys, here is the newest addition to my collection, a signature from a Brazilian former president from 1940.

    Later today I'll talk a little about his history and about the document

    Well, here we go, the document names Roberval to a federal ministry.

    Getúlio was leader of the 1930 revolution, rising to power and creating a new constitution, saying in power for 15 years as a dictator. In 1945 he renounced to the presidency, being afraid of a military coup.
    In 1951 he was elected again, democratically. Until 1954, when 19 Generals signed a manifesto asking for his deposition. That's when he committed suicide with a shot to the heart, leaving a letter with his famous quote "I leave life to enter history".

    This is the gun and the shirt he was wearing when he died
