  Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ferdinand was styled both Ferdinand III of Sicily (October 6, 1759 - December 8, 1816) and Ferdinand IV of Naples (October 6, 1759 - January 23, 1799; June 13, 1799 - March 30, 1806; May 3, 1815 - December 8, 1816).
Ferdinand was restored for a third time by right of his victory on the Battle of Tolentino (May 3, 1815) over rival monarch Joachim I.
Ferdinand was now completely subservient to Austria, an Austrian, Count Nugent, being even made commander-in-chief of the army; and for four years he reigned as a despot, every tentative effort at the expression of liberal opinion being ruthlessly suppressed.

 Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies (January 12, 1810 – May 22, 1859) was born in Palermo.
In January 1848 another rising in Sicily was the signal for revolutions all over Italy and Europe; it was followed by a movement in Naples, and the king granted a constitution which he swore to observe.
Sicily, whence the Royalists had been expelled, was subjugated by General Filangieri, and the chief cities were bombarded, an expedient which won for Ferdinand the epithet of King Bomba.

 Royal House of Bourbon Two Sicilies - History
Elder son of King Francis I, Ferdinand was born in Palermo on 12 January 1810 and died in Caserta on 22 May 1859, when he was still young.
When he was still a child, the British thought of making him King of Sicily (according to their plans, he would have been easily controlled), whereas in 1820 the Carbonari wanted to give him the crown of Lombardy.
But Ferdinand was never tempted by these proposals, because of his sincere affection to his land and people and also because he was aware of his rights as King were based on his dynastic legitimacy and this legitimacy was sacred for all lawful sovereigns.
