  Camillo Benso, Count Cavour - LoveToKnow 1911
CAMILLO BENSO CAVOUR, Count (1810-1861), Italian statesman, was born at Turin on the 1st of August 1810.
Cavour's political ideas were greatly influenced by the July revolution of 1830 in France, which proved that an historic monarchy was not incompatible with Liberal principles, and he became more than ever convinced of the benefits of a constitutional monarchy as opposed both to despotism and to republicanism.
Cavour's chief measure of internal reform during this period was a bill for suppressing all monastic orders unconnected with education, preaching or charity; this aroused strong opposition from the extremists of both parties and also from the king, and led to the minister's resignation.
