Abstract

This comment on Romani (above) emphasizes the degree to which British reactions to events in Italy in 1859 were widely conditioned by the similarities leading Liberals identified with the Glorious Revolution of 1688. These included an emphasis on monarchy, despite a distrust of Piedmonts dynastic and military alliance with Napoleon III, and on the leading part of an enlightened aristocracy, promoting constitutional liberty as an alternative to both revolution and absolutism. In this perspective, the Italian moderates were widely appraised as true sons of England.
