The 1800's was a rough start for the Portuguese, as the Spanish was colonizing other isolated lands in the Atlantic Ocean. The king, who at the time as a absolute monarch, ordered a expansion of the Portuguese military, to maintain colonies in Africa and South America, who were mainly either under Spanish, French, or British hands. The Brazilian colony was ordered to militarize the borders near French and British Guiana, which was usually militarized by British arsenal.
