In 1409 Sicily was reunited with Aragon, and Alfonso (1435-58) reunited it with Naples.

She is the first Sicilian royal princess born in Italy since the House of Bourbon of the Two Sicilies was exiled following the annexation of the Kingdom of Naples and Sicily to the Kingdom of Italy in 1861.
She is also descended from the Norman kings of Sicily and from various French and Italian noble families, a complex heritage reflected in the coat of arms of the House of the Two Sicilies (shown here).
Two of the family's palaces, the Chinese Palace in Palermo (in the lush royal park known as the "Favorita") and the Ficuzza hunting lodge in a forest near Corleone, both built around 1800 when Ferdinando I and Marie Caroline were here, are lasting testaments to the dynasty's presence in Sicily.

Europe's first revolution in 1848 occurred in Sicily, a part of the Bourbon Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, which was notorious for its arbitrary and repressive government and endemic unrest.
Efforts on the part of the government of Ferdinand II (1830-59) to enact economic and agrarian reform had been thwarted by evasion of the law and corruption, and much of the drive for Sicilian autonomy was prompted to avoid outside meddling with the usurpation of the land by a minority.
Sicily, however, did suffer from the economic exactions of Naples and an inefficient, corrupt, and brutal administration, and many Sicilians longed for the autonomy provided by the island's short-lived 1812 constitution.

Thus, the Head of the Royal House of the Two Sicilies is the Duke of Castro.

His successor as Head of the Two Sicilies Royal House was his eldest son Ferdinand-Pius, Duke of Calabria, who had been baptized at the Vatican in 1869 by Pope Pius IX and had served with distinction in the Spanish-American War.
The deliberate omission by Ferdinand Pius of any mention of the Two Sicilies in these Statutes supports the view that the Grand Magistery was not tied to the succession to the Headship of the Royal House.

And he learned that in Sicily, which has been invaded repeatedly over the centuries--by Arabs, Normans, Bourbons, Greeks, Spaniards, Romans, et al.--nothing is ever quite what it seems.
And this is what ties his work, in that odd Sicilian way, to the fictions, particularly the longer fictions, of Sciascia, whose novels manage to combine brooding philosophical and historical meditations, and the kind of intellectual detective work that doesn't solve crimes so much as open them up into larger crimes that redefine paranoia itself.
There is a playfulness to his work, and a murderous irony as well, that makes him, in many ways, very much the descendant of his fellow Sicilian Luigi Pirandello, who likewise was a student of the malleable identity, the social illusion that obscures reality, the social masks that people don.
