The Cisalpine Republic

The Cisalpine Republic

(p.589) Chapter XXV The Cisalpine Republic
The Age of the Democratic Revolution

R. R. Palmer

Princeton University Press

By 1799 there were five revolutionary republics in Italy, all but one swept away in the Austro-Russian reaction. They were the Cisalpine, the Ligurian, the Luccan, the Roman, and the Neapolitan—or Parthenopean as the French called it. This chapter treats only the Cisalpin. Absorbing the earlier Cispadane Republic of 1796, and evolving, after the battle of Marengo of 1801, into the Italian Republic and the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, the Cisalpine stands as a prominent landmark both in the spread of revolution in the 1790s, and in the long process of the modernization of Italy which we know as the Risorgimento.
