The Bourbons of Naples and the two Sicilies

The Bourbon dynasty of Naples and the two Sicilies reigned over southern Italy from 1734 to 1861.

In 1734 Charles of Bourbon (King of Naples and Sicily from 1734 to 1759), these, son of Philip V of Spain and Elizabeth Farnese, he conquered the Crowns of Naples and Sicily, restoring a united and sovereign kingdom to all effects. After two centuries of political dependence, the “Reame” again became a free nation under the Bourbon dynasty of Naples and Sicily.

Successors of Charles of Bourbon were:

  • Ferdinand IV (1759-1825), from 1814 Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies;
  • Francis I (1825-1830),
  • Ferdinand II (1830-1859), Francis II, who in 1860 lost the Kingdom, conquered by Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoy.

With this conquest, the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies ceases to exist as a sovereign and independent kingdom.
