Laura Centeno de Azambuja was a strong, vociferous, supporter of the Republican cause in the Farroupilha War of Rio Grande do Sul (1835-45). According to Maria Dutra da Silveira (pp. 68-9), Azambuja received a letter from the opposing Legalist commander Felipe Nery de Oliveira in 1840 warning her to contain the expression of her views, which were considered imprudent and would be injurious to her family.
