In Cosmedin 40 INTRODUCING ROME Rome During Unification Under the French Emperor Napoleon, Italy had a brief taste of unity, but by 1815 it was once more divided into many small states and papal rule was restored in Rome. Over the next 50 years, patriots, led by Mazzini, Garibaldi, and others, struggled to create an independent, unified Italy. In 1848 Rome was briefly declared a Republic, but Garibaldi’s forces were driven out by French troops. The French continued to protect the pope, while the rest of Italy was united as a kingdom under Vittorio Emanuele of Savoy.
