The long-lived General José Norton de Matos (1867-1955) had his greatest success in the colonial issue, besides the ‘Miracle of Tancos’ and him running for President, in 1949. Indeed, his commission in India, where he was in charge of Land Surveying, his participation in the mission responsible for establishing the borders of Macao, and the offices of Governor-General and High Commissioner, in Angola, marked many years of activity overseas, after which he wrote doctrinal books and collaborated in newspapers and magazines. The aim of this study is to follow the colonial thinking of Norton de Matos, in order to integrate it into his time. Having dealt with the overseas issue during three political regimes, we shall assess his colonial thinking based on the main thrust of the Constitutional Monarchy, First Republic, and the dictatorial regime of Estado Novo. Therefore, it is important to establish the contact points between the three regimes and explain the ideas that permeated his views.
