Gaeta remembered

On the occasion of yesterday's 150th anniversary of the fall of Gaeta, last stronghold of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, to Garibaldi's thugs, it seems appropriate to post this article in defense of the legacy of the Italian Bourbons. Down with unified Italy (how exactly is Berlusconi an improvement on the kings of old?), and shame on Vittorio Emanuele II for cooperating with the enemies of his class and his Church!

Quite a coincidence-- I was just posting on the Wittelsbachs, including Maria Sofia, the last Queen of Naples, the "heroine of Gaeta":
