The city ​​of Manacapuru originated from a village of Mura Indians, founded in 1786, soon after the pacification of the Indians. In 1865 the Parish of Our Lady of Nazareth of Manacapuru was established. In 1894, Manacapuru was considered a village and the municipality was created, and was separated from Manaus. The name "Manacapuru"means "filled with flowers" in the language of mura, but the city became known as "Princess of the Solimões."
