Second Italian Invasion of the Papal States 1867

[ 1867 ]

In 1867 during the Austro-Prussian War, Garibaldi, an Italian Soldier, tried to invade the Papal States. Attempts to overthrow the Italian government resulted in the return of French forces to Italy.

*****

In 1867 Garibaldi led another private expedition of his own into the Papal States. This, too, was secretly subsidized by the government, though, of course, the King pretended otherwise; but political mismanagement of the whole incident forced the French to intervene, and French troops defeated Garibaldi's volunteers at Mentana. Once more he was arrested by the Italian government in order to cover up its complicity, but he was soon released and taken back to Caprera.
