Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball

Kingdom of Italyball is the king of side Switching


a former countryball. He is Italy-icon.png Italyball in his youth when he was a kingdom. In 1925 a cancer cell called Benito Mussolini turned him a fascist and joined the Axis Powers and aligned himself with Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball in the years leading up to World War II. After the war began, he joined the Axis war effort, but suffered horribly and was defeated by 1943 where he switched through a decree and a disagreement with his fascist self, thus making the Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball and so joined the Allies for the remainder of the war. In 1946 he became a republic. 

History

Unification (1848-1871) 

The Italian stateballs had been divided for centuries since the fall of the glorious SPQR-icon.png SPQRball in 476 AD, but only after the Enlightenment and subsequent Napoleonic Wars, did a sense of Italian nationalism and unity begin growing amongst the Italian stateballs, particularly after the Revolutions of 1848 which rocked the European continent. In 1859, Sardinia-Piedmont-icon.png Kingdom of Sardiniaball annexed many of the Northern Italian Stateballs, such as Tuscany-icon.png Tuscanyball, Modenaball, Massa-icon.png Massaball and Parmaball. He then fought a war against Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball Austrian Empire-icon (crown).png Habsburgball with the help of France-icon.png Franceball to liberate Lombardia, in exchange for giving Nice and Savoy to Franceball.

Then in 1860, Sardinia-icon.png Sardiniaball led his Redshirts' Expedition of the Thousand to Two Siciliesball's clay, which was then forced to join the new union, leading to Sardinia-icon.png Sardiniaball to proclaim himself as Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball in 1861. He then set about reclaiming 'Italia Irredenta' (Unredeemed Italy). In 1866, he teamed up with Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball against Austrian Empire-icon (crown).png Habsburgball again, gaining Venice from Franceball, who had obtained it from Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball directly. Then Italyball turned on France-icon.png Franceball's ally Papal States-icon.png Papal Statesball while France-icon.png Franceball was distracted by the North German stateballs during the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71. Rome was 'liberated' by Italyball, and became the new capital, with Papal States-icon.png Papal Statesball protesting vehemently.

Italia Irredenta! (1871-1915)

Throughout the 1870s and 1880s, Italyball worked to secure diplomatic ties with his neighbours; in 1882 he signed an alliance with German Empire-icon.png German Empireball and Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball despite their differences over the Adriatic lands, then he signed a naval agreement with UK-icon.png UKball in 1887 regarding the Mediterranean passage. He also colonized East Africa in 1889, adopting Italian Eritrea-icon.png Italian Eritreaball and Italian Somaliland-icon.png Italian Somalilandball. He was however beaten to the punch by France-icon.png Franceball who took Tunisiaball in 1881 before he could. He was, however shamefully defeated at the Battle of Adawa in 1896 by Ethiopiaball.

By 1900 Italyball had established himself as a world power; taking part in the 1897 Cretan expedition, and the international relief expedition of 1900 during the Boxer Rebellion. In 1908, Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball annexed Bosnia-Herzegovina outright from a dying Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball, causing Italyball to declare war for the Dodecanese Islands, and Cyrenaicaball (now Libya-icon.png Libyaball) and his clay in 1911-12. He stayed neutral for the first few months of the Great War when it broke out in August 1914, because German Empire-icon.png German Empireball and Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball were the aggressors, but the Allies convinced Italyball to join them in 1915 with promises of Dalmatia-icon.png Dalmatia, Trentino-icon.png Trentino, Istria-icon.png Istria, and colonies.

Viva Il Duce! (1915-1939)

Vincere e vinceremo!

Italyball fought hard against Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, with whom he was evenly matched in the Julian Alps, but was defeated at Caporetto in 1917, but triumphed at Vittorio Veneto in 1918, shortly after which Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball signed an armistice at Vila Gusti. Italyball had been bankrupted by the war, and turned briefly towards socialism when he didn't get all he was expecting at the Peace Conference (he got only Trentino-icon.png Trentino, Free Imperial City of Trieste-icon.png Trieste, Istria-icon.png Istria, Fiume and Zadar-icon.png Zadar). In 1922 a cancer cell called Benito Mussolini turned him in fascist and Marched on Rome-icon.png Rome; it took until 1925 for him to completely abandon democracy. In the 1920s, he pioneered aviation, and took part in pacifying a colonial uprising in Libya-icon.png Libya; in 1929 he signed the Lateran Pact with the new Vatican-icon.png Vatican City and in the 1930s, he began building up a vast armaments industry in preparation for war, as he had to prevent the newly Nazified Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball from Anschlussing Austriaball in 1934.

In 1934, following border clashes at Wal-Wal, Italyball manufactured a casus-belli for war against Abyssinia-icon.png Abyssiniaball (Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball) despite a mutual 1928 non-aggression pact. He invaded in 1935, using poison gas and bombers to massacre 8-icon.png 8balls, eventually annexing their clay to create Italian East Africaball. This led to international outrage, and League of Nations-icon.png League of Nationsball condemned Italyball's actions by introducing half-hearted economic sanctions. Italyball left the League and abandoned the democracies (UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball) in response, to formulate an alliance with Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball, aligning themselves in the 1936 Anti-Comintern Pact and Rome-Berlin Axis. They were further drawn into each other by their assistance of Francoist Spain-icon.png Nationalist Spainball in the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), and the lack of Italyball's criticism of Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball's remilitarization of the Rhineland, then his Anschluss of Austriaball successfully conducted in March 1938. He stood by his new ally in the Czech-icon.png Czech crisis of September 1938. Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball pressured his friend into adopting racial laws against Israel-icon.png Jewcubes in his country and Beta Israel-icon.png Ethiopian jews in Italian East Africa-icon.png Italian East Africaball in 1938 as well.

Disastrous Warfare (1939-1947)

In March 1939, Italyball Invaded Albania-icon.png Albaniaball's clay, who had been his protectorate since 1926. He then signed the Pact of Steel with Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball; however he was left shocked when Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball signed a non-aggression pact with their mortal enemy Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, and even more so when they invaded Polandball jointly in September 1939. Italyball again stayed neutral for the first stretch of the war, but after seeing Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball's blitzkrieg through Western Europe and the fall of France-icon.png Franceball in mid-1940, Italyball jumped in half-preparedly as always, and got to occupy parts of Vichy France-icon.png Vichy Franceball's clay afterwards. He later successfully invaded British Somaliland-icon.png British Somalilandball and Egypt-icon.png Egyptball. He got his ass kicked by Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Greeceball in November 1940 when he tried to invade, resulting in Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball having to come to bail him out the following year with a Balkan campaign. Italy occupied most of Greece, Yugoslavia, and some of the southern Balkans afterward. UK-icon.png UKball had also bombed his fleet at Taranto.

Meanwhile, in 1941 UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Free Franceball had liberated Abyssinia-icon.png Abyssinia in East Africa, and occupied his colonies there, as well as in Libya. His forces were hopeless in North Africa until Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball sent his panzers to help him out; then he was forced to send his troops to help invade Soviet-icon.png Sovietball's vast clay. Then USA-icon.png USAball and UK-icon.png UKball kicked them out of North Africa altogether, despite Italyballs resistance which saved the entire Axis army, being internationally acclaimed (such as by Winston Churchill and Erwin Rommell) despite Allied propaganda tried to hide it. Eventually, the Allies landed in Sardinia-icon.png Sardinia and Sicily-icon.png Sicily by mid 1943, pushing up into Campania. At this point, Italyball had spent his resources, and was tired of the war; he dropped fascism in the coup of 25 Luglio 1943 and signed an armistice, but then Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball occupied the north of his clay and created a puppet state, Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball to continue the war as the Allies struggled up the Italian peninsula, with battles at Monte Cassio. Also, he and Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball teamed up only one time for kicking Free France-icon.png Franceball's ass who was trying to occupy Aosta Valley-icon.png Aosta Valleyball. Rome was liberated in mid 1944; but Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Social Republicball kept fighting until the surrender of Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball in May 1945. Italyball finally was cured from this cancer (for while ... you known... metastasis).

After the disaster of the war, which had wrecked Italyball's clay and industry, he decided to dispose of the monarchy in a referendum in 1947 as he desperately attempted to gather hope in the monarchy, after having lost his colonies and having to pay reparations. So, in 1947, Italian-Empire-icon.png The Kingdom of Italy became a Italy-icon.png republic
