The Miss República Portuguesa Pageant was made in 2011 by Isidro de Brito.
In 2014 after undergoing a major restructuring process, the organization separated the two national pageants into separate events - Miss Universo Portugal and Miss World Portugal. The Miss República Portuguesa also handles representatives to the Miss International, Miss Supranational and Miss Grand International.
Before Miss República Portuguesa, the traditional pageant Miss Portugal was held in 1960 for the first time. The pageant used to send representatives for Portugal to the Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss International pageants. From 2003 to 2009, Portugal did not participate at Miss Universe.
