 Francis II of the Two Sicilies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King Francis II of the Two Sicilies (January 16, 1836 – December 27, 1894) was the son and heir of Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies and Maria Cristina of Savoy.
Francis, after long hesitations and even an appeal to Garibaldi himself, left Naples on September 6 with his wife Maria Sophia, the court, the diplomatic corps (the French and English ministers excepted), and went by sea to Gaeta, where a large part of the army was concentrated.
Francis II was weak-minded, stupid and vacillating, but, although his short reign was stained with some cruel massacres and persecutions, he was less of a tyrant than his father.
