One famous Italian king was Vittorio Emanuele II [March 14, 1820-January 9, 1878]. He became the first king of a united Italy, in February 1861. He therefore became famous as 'Padre della Patria', which means 'the Father of the Fatherland'. Another famous Italian king was Vittorio Emmanuele III [November 11, 1869-December 28, 1947]. He became famous as the last king of a united Italy. Until shortly after the end of World War I, he was respected by his people for his support of economic development and political and social reforms. Additionally, he managed to keep Italy neutral in the beginning years of the war. He approved Italy's membership in the Triple Alliance with Germany and Austria-Hungary. But at the same time, he realized the importance of getting along with the Triple Entente of Britain, France, and Russia. Nevertheless, he proceeded to lose all of the headway that he made nationally and internationally, with his actions before and during World II. For example, he didn't stop the Fascist march on Rome in 1922. In the way of another example, he allowed Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini [July 29, 1883-April 28, 1945] to form the first Fascist led government of Italy even though only 35 Fascist Party members had been elected to Parliament. That combined with the Italy's disastrous participation in the war, and the economic failures of the war years, led the King to abdicate on May 9, 1946, to the widespread approval by the Italian people.
