Sample text

Other legends were quickly added to the stock: for example, that Victor Emmanuel had wanted to continue fighting in July 1859 but had been overborne by Napoleon III, which was quite untrue. The early histories of the Risorgimento gilded the role played by the crown by simply omitting documents which contradicted this picture or by mistranslating foreign sources. The ‘heroic Risorgimento’ of the late nineteenth century was thus an easy target for attack by 38 liberal historians of the twentieth century, who began to reveal the shortcomings of the monarchy.

At the last moment Cavour’s careful manoeuvring seemed to be about to come to nought. Not only did the British offer to mediate between Piedmont and Austria, but France appeared to be having second thoughts. Then, on 23 April 1859, an Austrian ultimatum was handed over in Turin demanding that the Piedmontese army be put back on a peacetime footing and that the regiments of volunteers formed under the aegis of the Italian National Society be disbanded. Cavour rejected the demand, and war broke out on 29 April.

It would also put central Italy into Piedmont’s hands. Sooner than do this, Napoleon III unilaterally proposed an armistice on 5 July and Franz Josef accepted three days later. The terms hammered out by the two emperors gave most of Lombardy to France, who would pass it on to Turin; Venetia remained part of the Austrian empire; the rulers of Tuscany and Modena were to be returned to their thrones; and papal government was to be restored to the Legations. Cavour wanted to dissuade Victor Emmanuel from accepting these terms and resigned when the king refused to follow his line.
