A History of the Modern World, Vol. 2 of 2 free pdf Excerpt from A History of the Modern World, Vol. 2 of 2 On the night of the disastrous defeat at Novara, Friday, March 23rd, 1849, Charles Albert resigned his crown in favour of his son, Victor Emmanuel II., then twenty-nine years old. He was known as the Re Galant' uomo - "King Honest Man" - from the uprightness of his character and the fact that he sturdily refused to recall or impair the Constitution which had once been given to his country. On the following day he held a conference with Radetzky, the conqueror, and, on March 25th, accepted the onerous conditions of the armistice. The Piedmontese agreed to retire from the area bounded by the Po, the Sesia, and the Ticino, to allow the fortress of Alessandria to be occupied by a mixed garrison of Austrians and Piedmontese till the conclusion of peace, to evacuate the Duchies immediately, to recall the fleet from the Adriatic, to disband the Lombard volunteers, and to pay the expenses of the war. Next night the King returned to Turin, accepted the resignation of the Ratazzi Ministry, and established de Launay in his place. On March 29th Victor Emmanuel swore fidelity to the Constitution in the presence of the two Chambers. He was coldly received, as the armistice was unpopular. Indeed, the Chambers declared it to be unconstitutional, and a revolt at Genoa, under the influence of Mazzini, was put down by La Marmora. Austria demanded a war indemnity of nearly 10,000,000, and, since it was impossible to pay this, the country had to submit to the indignity of a part occupation of Alessandria.
