View of the battle of Solferino. The alliance of the French army under Napoleon III and the Sardinian army under Victor Emmanuel II (collectively known as the Franco-Sardinian Alliance) overcame the Austrian army under the command of Emperor Francis Joseph I. More than 200,000 soldiers fought in this important battle, largest since the Battle of Leipzig in 1813. The Battle of Solferino was a decisive battle in the Second Italian War of Independence, a crucial step in the Italian Risorgimento, the unification of Italy. The geopolitical context for the war was Italy's nationalist struggle for unification, long split between France, Austria, Spain and the Papal State. The battle took place near the village of Solferino, which lies between Milan and Verona south of Lake Garda. Lithography. Maker unknown, after M. Beauce. Made around 1880.
