  Camillo Benso, conte di Cavour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cavour was born in Turin during Napoleonic rule, into a family that had gained a fair amount of land during the French occupation.
Cavour then lost the next election, while the Piedmontese army was destroyed at the Battle of Novara, leading Charles Albert to abdicate, leaving his son, Victor Emmanuel II in charge.
Cavour was theoretically the perfect man for the eventual job of Prime Minister of an Italian monarchy, being generally liberal and believing in free trade, public right of opinion, and secular rule, but still an enemy of the republicans and revolutionaries inside Piedmont, balancing their needs skillfully.

Cavour’s political ideas were greatly influenced by the July revolution of 1830 in France, which seemed to him to prove 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 absolutism and to republicanism.
Cavour sought some form of alliance with the French against Austria in the hope of ensuring that some of those areas of the Italian peninsula ruled directly by Austria, or by Austrian supported rulers, would be more free to join in with a redrawing of the political map of the the Italian Peninsula.
To this end Cavour arranged for a crisis to be raised where subjects of the Duchy of Modena, where the ruler was known to be supported by Austria, were encouraged by Cavour to express dissatisfaction with the current administration and to invite Victor Emmanuel to come to their aid.
