    Polandball Wiki

    Kingdom of the Two Siciliesball (1816-1861) was the largest countryball in Italy before the Italian unification. It extended across southern Italy. Being ruled by the previous Bourbon Dynasty that ruled  Kingdom of Naplesball, the Two Siciliesball was reactionary and vehemently opposed the notion of a united Italyball, especially one dominated by the likes of the seemingly "liberal"  Kingdom of Sardiniaball.


    However, the Two Siciliesball would finally be destroyed by Garibaldi's "Expedition of the Thousand" which would see the Kingdom annexed by the  Kingdom of Sardiniaball. Although the Two Siciliesball would still attempt to resist Savoyard rule for another 4-5 years (in the form of Brigands and Bourbon loyalists), they would eventually be quashed, with Southern Italy as a whole being the "last bastion of Royalism" within the  Kingdom of Italyball during the (Monarchy or Republic) 1946 referendum.    ​​​​​​

    History

    This peninsular had been unified forcibly earlier by Joachim Murat during Napoleonic Wars (under French Occupation) under the  Napoleonic Kingdom of Naplesball. Once the Napoleonic Wars ended, the Bourbon Dynasty of Kingdom of Sicilyball took back Murat's throne in Naplesball​, thus seeing the creation of  Kingdom of the Two Siciliesball. The Bourbon king, Ferdinand I, was original open to reforms, but given the fact that it was the liberal elements of  First French Empireball and those within his own country ( Parthenopean Republicball) that deposed him, he turned the Kingdom into that of a reactionary based absolute monarchy, adamant in preventing most liberal reforms.

    The Kingdom of the Two Siciliesball was relatively independent of the foreign influences of French Second Republicball and Austrian Empireball, a rarity within the Italian peninsular during this time. Despite 3 revolts originating from the island of  Sicilyball, the Kingdom managed to live until 1860. This was when it was killed by the  Kingdom of Sardiniaball in an event that would be known as "The Expedition of the Thousand".

    Despite support from  Spanish Empireball and  Papal Statesball, The Kingdom was annexed by the newly proclaimed  Kingdom of Italyball. Fighting, however, did not stop until 1864, as Bourbon Loyalists and Brigands enacted a campaign of terror and agitation within Southern Italy, as they refused to recognize the authority of the  Kingdom of Italyball.

    The legacy of the Kingdom of the Two Siciliesball saw the shaping Southern Italy as we know it today as the area is reactionary and deeply conservative to this day (even going so far as to vote to maintain the  Kingdom of Italyball during the 1946 "Republic of Monarchy" referendum).
