The Kingdom of Italy in 1810

The Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy was founded in 1805 from a collection of smaller states in the north and east of modern Italy that Napoleon had wrested from Austrian control. During its ten year existence the new nation contributed thousands of men to Napoleon's armies, proving to be some of his most loyal and dependable allies.

This site tells the story of these brave men: their leaders, their uniforms, their organisation and the campaigns and battles in which they fought.
