Adriano Moreira started as a sympathizer of the Portuguese Democratic Opposition movement, signing a list of the MUD in 1945. He was the lawyer of the family of general José Marques Godinho, when he was arrested and later died in prison for his attempt to overthrow the Salazar regime in 1947. The family of the general sued the minister Fernando Santos Costa for his alleged responsibility in the death and was all arrested because of that, like Adriano Moreira himself.

He became with time closer to the New State. He was chosen to be the Portuguese minister for Overseas under António de Oliveira Salazar's Estado Novo regime. Noted for the legislative reforms that he introduced during his two years (1961–1963) as Minister of the Overseas Provinces (Ministro do Ultramar) during the New State (at Salazar's invitation). From this period are the foundation of two university institutions in Portuguese Angola and Mozambique - Estudos Gerais Universitários de Moçambique and Estudos Gerais Universitários de Angola. A brief two-year spell in Brazilian exile marked the short path between two political regimes (pre- and post- 1974 Carnation Revolution) for Adriano Moreira.

His influence over the CDS – People's Party, the conservative party of which he was President and which he represented as a deputy in the Portuguese Parliament from 1979, was to be more permanent, and from where he was to occupy an important place in the development of post-Carnation Revolution politics. He was Vice-President of the Assembly of the Republic between 1991 and 1995.

He married at São Martinho, Sintra, on August 30, 1968 Isabel Mónica Maia de Lima Mayer, born at Mercês, Lisbon, on August 2, 1945, whose paternal grandfather had distant Ashkenazi Jewish and Sephardic Jewish ancestry and whose paternal grandmother was Irish, and had six children.
