Personal Information

  • Name Francesco I. Genaro of Two Sicilies 
    Born 14 Aug 1777 
    Gender Male 
    Died 8 Nov 1830 
    • Francis I (Francesco Gennaro Giuseppe, August 14, 1777 – November 8, 1830) was King of the Two Sicilies from 1825 to 1830. Francis was born in Naples, the son of Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies and Queen Marie Caroline née Archduchess Marie Caroline of Austria. He was also the nephew of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI the last King and Queen of France.
      He married Archduchess Marie Klementine of Austria, daughter of the emperor Leopold II, in 1796, and at her death Isabella Infanta of Spain, daughter of Charles IV of Spain.´After the Bourbon family fled from Naples to Sicily in 1806, and Lord William Bentinck, the British resident, had established a constitution and deprived Ferdinand I of all power, Francis was appointed regent (1812). On the fall of Napoleon his father returned to Naples and suppressed the Sicilian constitution and autonomy, incorporating his two kingdoms into that of the Two Sicilies (1816); Francis then assumed the revived title of duke of Calabria. While still heir apparent he professed liberal ideas, and on the outbreak of the revolution of 1820 he accepted the regency apparently in a friendly spirit towards the new constitution. But he was probably more conservatively inclined than that.
