§ 649. Napoleon III at Biarritz

19th century:
§649. Napoleon III at Biarritz (1854 & s.): VIII-85.

VIII-85:
Between Bayonne and Saint-Jean-de-Luz,
Shall be located the promontory of Mars,
With no fish of water; a prostitute shall deprive him of light,
Then suffocated in bed with no aid.


(Entre Bayonne & à saint Jean de Lux
Sera posé de Mars la promottoire
Aux Hanix d’Aquin Nanar hostera lux,
Puis suffocqué au lit sans adjutoire.)

Keys to the reading:
Entre Bayonne & à saint Jean de Lux: = à la place entre Bayonne & Saint-Jean-de Luz (at the place between Bayonne and Saint-Jean-de-Luz), i.e. at Biarritz (Vignois, 1910, p.255);

Sera posé de Mars la promottoire: = Shall be located the promontory of Mars. «The promontory of Biarritz, located at an equal distance from Bayonne and from Saint-Jean-de Luz, was the place of stay for Napoleon III who lived there as Mars with Venus at the season when one was seeking for breeze of the sea» (Vignois, id.);

Mars: = Mars (§694, IV-100) = Napoleon III as « the Man on Horseback » (Guerard, 1955, p. 201);

Hanix: In Greek ανιχθυς (without fish);

Aquin: In Latin aqua (water, rain, sea);

Aux Hanix d’Aquin: In the seaside resort where few of the French Catholic visited him, fish being the symbol of the Catholic;

Nanar: From a Latin nonaria (a prostitute)(Ionescu,1976,p.573).

Summary:
Between Bayonne and Saint-Jean-de-Luz, shall be located the promontory of Mars, with no fish of water; a prostitute shall deprive him of light: « The rulers set the example of the change of gait. Napoleon is rapidly aging, her bladder disease, whose exact diagnosis will be made at the end of the reign, has worsened and gives crises of suffering followed by reductions that weaken his will. His youthful love for the Empress has cooled, he returned to amorous adventures. The certified favorite is first an Italian lady of high society, the Countess Cassiglione, whose beauty is displayed at the receptions of the Tuileries; a most secret affair with a demimondaine will be made public after the fall of the Empire by the disclosure of the letters of the President of the Supreme Court in charge of negotiating the break. The Empress, neglected and offended, focuses affection on her son, she no longer has the carefree gaiety of the beginning, its beauty, enhanced by the maturity, becomes majestic. The rulers retain their official residences in the Tuileries, and in the castles of Compiegne, Fontainebleau and St. Cloud, with the luxury of personal and ceremonial pomp deemed mandatory for a large courtyard. They lived subject to the label, surrounded by their “houses” organized into hierarchies since 1852, but they escape from there every summer. Napoleon will usually take a cure at Vichy, where he takes only a few intimates. He spent the holidays at his favorite residence of Biarritz on the coast of the Ocean, in the Basque country at the foot of the Pyrenees. The imperial family will live in a big villa and leads there a quiet life, almost free from the label, and free from festivals; it receives the preferred host, the Emperor walks on the beach conversing with them; they make trips by car to the mountains.» (Seignobos, 1921b, p.2-3)

Then suffocated in bed with no aid: «Misconduct blinded him so that his state of exhaustion was one of the causes of his death: when he later fainted in bed, nothing could pull round him out of this state.» (Vignois, id.) « Prince Napoleon was ready to work with the Emperor. General Bourbaki, military governor of Lyons, could be trusted. But the Man on Horseback must be able to sit a horse. So Napoleon decided to submit to an operation – lithotrity - fully aware of its dangers at his age and in his condition. It was his last gamble. On January 2, 1873 the first operation was performed; a second followed on the 6th. Both went well. The third was scheduled for the 9th. On the eve, they gave the patient chloral. He slept heavily, barely recovered consciousness, and at eleven a.m. on January 9 he was at peace.» (Guerard, 1955, p. 201)

§ 650. Passing the Ticino

19th century:
§650. Passing the Ticino (1859.4.29): VIII-7.

VIII-7:
Verceil and Milan shall have communications by intelligence and diplomacy,
In the district of Ticino payment shall be made.
Water, blood and fire shall run through Siena and Florence,
A monarch shall fall low from high, when May begins.


(Verceil, Milan donra intelligence,
Dedans Tycin sera faite la paye,
Courir par Siene eau, sang, feu par Florence.
Unique choir d’hault en bas faisant maye.)

Keys to the reading :
Verceil: Vercelli, representing the kingdom of Sardinia;

Milan: A tributary of the empire of Austria;

In the district of Ticino: In Magenta;

Water: A people in revolt (Torné-Chavigny, 1861, p.111);

Par Siene, par Florence: In Tuscany;

Unique: = A monarch (Torné-Chavigny, 1870, p.123);

Maye: = mai (May) for the necessity of rhyming with paye.

Summary :
Verceil and Milan shall have communications by intelligence and diplomacy: « On the 1st of January, 1859, at a New Year’s reception, the emperor said to Baron von Hübner, the ambassador of Austria: “I regret that our relations with your government are not so good as they were. I beg you to tell the emperor that my personal sentiments for him are unchanged.” Napoleon's New Year's greeting was immediately appreciated at its right value by the military party in Vienna, whilst the Austrian diplomacy remained on the wrong track till almost the last moment.On the 20th of April Cavour received news through Naples that the ultimatum dated the 19th, which was to give him breathing time, was on its way from Vienna. On the 23d Baron Kellersperz handed it in at Turin; it contained the peremptory interpellation: “ Will Piedmont, within the space of three days, promise to place its army on the footing of peace and dismiss the volunteer corps? — yes or no.” With this declaration of war, Austria had burned her boats; it now remained only to let the action follow the threat, as thunder follows lightning. The Piedmontese army should have been scattered, before a Frenchman put his foot on Italian soil; the French corps could then have been annihilated as they landed in troops or came down through the mountain passes. Gyulai let three days beyond the term assigned to Piedmont elapse before, on the 29th of April, he crossed the Ticino. Meanwhile the first French soldiers came into Turin and Genoa (cf. Duby, p.169), but only in quite small divisions.» (HH, XV, p.15-17)

In the district of Ticino payment shall be made: « As Russia was pressing on Turkey, so Austria was pressing on Italy. She had played an equivocal part during the Crimean War, whilst the kingdom of Sardinia, the only independent and constitutional state in Italy, had not feared to join her young army to the Anglo-French troops. This circumstance had made France the natural protectress of Piedmont, and by consequence of Italy, of which this little kingdom was the last citadel. Thus when the emperor of Austria, Francis Joseph, in defiance of European diplomacy, passed the Ticino as the emperor Nicholas had passed the Pruth, France once more found herself face to face with this new aggressor and on the side of the oppressed. In this war the emperor Napoleon resumed the secular policy of France, which consists in not suffering the preponderance of Austria or Germany in Italy - that is to say, on the French southeastern frontier. A French army reappeared on that soil where three centuries before the arms of France had left so many glorious traces. Europe looked on with keen attention; England as a well-wisher, Russia and Prussia amazed. Austria and France were left alone facing each other. The war lasted scarcely two months. After the brilliant affair of Montebello, which defeated an attempted surprise on the part of the Austrians, the Franco-Piedmontese army concentrated round Alessandria; then by a bold and skilful movement turned the right of the Austrians, who had already passed the Ticino, and compelled them to recross that river. Caught between the army corps of General MacMahon and the guard at Magenta, the Austrians lost 7,000 killed or wounded and 8,000 prisoners (June 4th). Two days later the French regiments entered Milan. The enemy, astounded at so rude a shock, abandoned his first line of defence, where, however, he had long been accumulating powerful means of action and resistance. He retired on the Adda, after vainly making a momentary stand at the already famous town of Marignano and on the Mincio, behind the illustrious plains of Castiglione and between the two fortresses of Peschiera and Mantua; then he took up his position, backed by the great city of Verona as an impregnable base. The emperor of Austria, with a new general and considerable reinforcements, had arrived there to await the French army. The Austrians had long studied this battlefield; there were 160,000 of them ranged on the heights with their centre at the village and tower of Solferino, and ready to descend on the French in the plain. Napoleon III had scarcely 140,000 men available, and was obliged to fight on a line extending over five leagues. Whilst the right wing was struggling against the enemy in the plain in order to prevent itself from being turned, and King Victor Emmanuel with his Piedmontese was bravely resisting on the left, the centre delivered a vigorous attack, and after a heroic struggle successively carried Mount Fenile, the mount of the cypresses, and finally the village of Solferino. The enemy's line was broken; his reserves, before they could come into action, were attained by the balls from the new rifled cannon of the French. All fled in frightful confusion; but a fearful storm, accompanied by hail and torrents of rain, stopped the victors and permitted the Austrians to recross the Mincio; they left twenty-five thousand men put out of action. In the evening the emperor Napoleon took up his headquarters in the very room which Francis Joseph had occupied in the morning (June 24th). Twice a conqueror, the emperor suddenly offered peace to his enemy. Italy was freed, although a portion of Italian territory, namely Venetia, still remained in the hands of Austria. Europe, bewildered by these rapid victories, allowed her awakening jealousy to appear. The emperor thought he had done enough for Italy by pushing Austria, so recently established on the banks of the Ticino, back behind the Mincio, and at Villafranca he signed with Francis Joseph a peace, the principal conditions of which were confirmed at the end of the year by the Treaty of Zurich. By this peace Austria resigned Lombardy, which France added to Piedmont that she might make for herself a faithful ally beyond the Alps. The Mincio became the boundary of Austria in the peninsula, where the various states were to form a great confederation under the presidency of the pope. But all those concerned rejected this plan, and the revolutionary movement continued. The emperor confined himself to preventing Austria from intervening. Then those governments of Parma, Modena, the Roman legations, Tuscany and Naples, which ever since 1814 had been merely lieutenants of Austria, were seen to fall to pieces successively, and Italy, minus Venice and Rome, was about to form a single kingdom, when the emperor thought himself called upon to take a precaution necessary to the security of France; he claimed the price of the assistance he had given and by the Treaty of Turin, March 24th, 1860, obtained the cession to himself of Savoy and the county of Nice (Nizza), which added three departments to France and carried her southern frontier to the summit of the Alps. For the first time since 1815 France, not by force and surprise but as the result of a great service rendered to a friendly nation, by pacific agreement, and according to the solemn vote of the inhabitants, had overstepped the limits traced round her at the period of her reverses. Europe dared not protest.» (HH, XIII, p.135-137)

Water, blood and fire shall run through Siena and Florence, A monarch shall fall low from high, when May begins: «The misfortunes that had befallen Austria confirmed and strengthened Sardinia in its ideal of Italian unity, and helped to bring about the fall of the lesser Italian sovereignties. In April the archduke Leopold of Tuscany had been forced to leave Florence and place himself under the protection of Austria. A provisory government was established under the protectorate of the king of Piedmont. But this arrangement did not meet Napoleon's views. His secret design was to give the Tuscan throne to his cousin, Louis Napoleon, the son-in-law of Victor Emmanuel, that there might gradually grow up in Italy a circle of states tributary to France which would hinder the dream of Italian unity from ever being realised. Unionist enthusiasm had already burned too high, however, for political or diplomatic schemes to avail against it. All over the land the flag of united Italy was raised, and conjunction demanded with Sardinia. Bologna declared itself free from the pope and invoked the dictatorship of the king of Sardinia. Many other cities of the pontifical state followed this example, indeed the greater part of the pontifical possessions would have fallen away from Rome had not the terrible storming of Perugia by the pope's Swiss guard spread such dismay that Ancona, Ferara, and Ravenna for a while remained true.» (HH, IX, p.604-605)

« The Univers (May 14, 1859): The very moment Leopold mounted the car, the tears of his caused by the abandon of his people obscured his look; he did not see the footboard and fell. Nostradamus here says that “ to fall low from high” instead of saying simply “ to fall ” in order to insist on this particular fact of the physical fall accompanying the moral fall.» (Torné-Chavigny, 1870, p.123);

§ 651. Francis-Joseph at Vigevano

19th century:
§651. Francis-Joseph at Vigevano (1859.4-7): VIII-3.

VIII-3:
At the fortified castle of Viglonne and Resviers
Shall be pressed the next-born of Nancy after having pressed:
Within Turin shall be the first inflammation,
When Lyon shall be benumbed with bereavement.


(Au fort chasteau de Viglonne & Resviers
Serra serre le puisnay de Nancy:
Dedans Turin seront ards les premiers,
Lors que de dueil Lyon sera transy.)

Keys to the reading:
Viglonne: « Two maps of Theatrum orbis, published in 1570, show between Verceil and Milan one and the same place under the names of Viglian and Viglenanno. The modern maps name this place Vigevano.» (Torné-Chavigny, 1870, p.110);

The fortified castle of Viglonne: « Mac-Arthy: “Vigevano, city of the kingdom of Sardinia, one mile distant from the Ticino, border of the Lombardo-Venetian kingdom, with walls of half a mile of circuit and an old fortified castle, built upon a rock, etc. Population of 15,400”.» (Torné-Chavigny, id.);

Viglonne: « Bouillé: “Vigevano, Victum viæ [travelling provisions = a logistic base], an old fortified castle”.» « The minister of France to the minister of the foreign affairs: “ Turin, April 30. The Austrians, concentrated in Pavia, entered yesterday the Piedmontese territory. They are marching from Vigevano to Mortara”.» (Torné-Chavigny, id.);

Resviers: « Res viæ [necessities of travelling], synonym of victum viæ [travelling provisions], connoting a second sense of re viare, to retreat. The Austrians remained, one month long, in possession of Vigevano and of the countries they had occupied since their invasion to the Piedmontese territory. They were dislodged from Verceil on May 31. Three days later, they lost the battle of Baffalora or Magenta, which obliged them to recross the Ticino.» (Torné-Chavigny, id.) “ Resviers ” is not a distinct city, but in apposition to Viglonne, qualifying it as a logistic base, notwithstanding the inserted conjunction &, a sophisticated element by the Prophet;

Serra serre: = Il serra et sera serré (He pressed and shall be pressed);

The next-born of Nancy: The emperor of Austria Francis-Joseph: « In 1818, the aged emperor Ferdinand abdicates... His having no children the order of succession called to the supreme rank the archduke Francis, his brother, a man already in the decline of life. He had a son aged nearly 18. He determined to abdicate in favour of this young prince. In consequence, on the 2nd of December, 1848, Francis-Joseph mounted to the throne.» (Torné-Chavigny, id., p.111);

Turin: The capital of the kingdom of Sardinia, representing the whole country;

Ards: «Arderer, brûler (to burn), être passionnné pour (being passionate for)» (Torné-Chavigny, id.);

Lyon: The pope Pius IX, whose arms have a figure of lions (Vignois, 1910, p.252);

Summary:
At the fortified castle of Viglonne and Resviers Shall be pressed the next-born of Nancy after having pressed: « Austria was pressing on Italy. She had played an equivocal part during the Crimean War, whilst the kingdom of Sardinia, the only independent and constitutional state in Italy, had not feared to join her young army to the Anglo-French troops. This circumstance had made France the natural protectress of Piedmont, and by consequence of Italy, of which this little kingdom was the last citadel. Thus when the emperor of Austria, Francis Joseph, in defiance of European diplomacy, passed the Ticino, France once more found herself face to face with this new aggressor and on the side of the oppressed. The war lasted scarcely two months. After the brilliant affair of Montebello, which defeated an attempted surprise on the part of the Austrians, the Franco-Piedmontese army concentrated round Alessandria; then by a bold and skilful movement turned the right of the Austrians, who had already passed the Ticino, and compelled them to recross that river. Caught between the army corps of General MacMahon and the guard at Magenta, the Austrians lost 7,000 killed or wounded and 8,000 prisoners (June 4th). Two days later the French regiments entered Milan.» (HH, XIII, p.135-136)

Within Turin shall be the first inflammation: « The misfortunes that had befallen Austria confirmed and strengthened Sardinia in its ideal of Italian unity, and helped to bring about the fall of the lesser Italian sovereignties. In April the archduke Leopold of Tuscany had been forced to leave Florence and place himself under the protection of Austria. A provisory government was established under the protectorate of the king of Piedmont. But this arrangement did not meet Napoleon's views. His secret design was to give the Tuscan throne to his cousin, Louis Napoleon, the son-in-law of Victor Emmanuel, that there might gradually grow up in Italy a circle of states tributary to France which would hinder the dream of Italian unity from ever being realised. Unionist enthusiasm had already burned too high, however, for political or diplomatic schemes to avail against it. All over the land the flag of united Italy was raised, and conjunction demanded with Sardinia. Bologna declared itself free from the pope and invoked the dictatorship of the king of Sardinia. Many other cities of the pontifical state followed this example, indeed the greater part of the pontifical possessions would have fallen away from Rome had not the terrible storming of Perugia by the pope's Swiss guard spread such dismay that Ancona, Ferara, and Ravenna for a while remained true.» (HH, IX, p.604-605)

When Lyon shall be benumbed with bereavement: « The Univers (June 26, 1859): “ We have reported the profound impression produced by the speech of Pius IX at the Sacred College on the anniversary of his exaltation to the sovereign pontificate. He repeated what he had often said that amidst the vicissitudes that overpowered him and the dangers seeming to enclose the Holy Chuch, he placed his confidence in the omnipotent God. Recalling, then, the formal and reiterated assurances of the emperor of the French to respect and to make respect the power of the Holy-See, He added that He relied upon the imperial word, that He was waiting with tranquility its effects. The Holy Father speedily sketched the drawing of the attempts of 1848, that happend to siege his palace, had assassinated his ministers, killed his secretary. He had to flee not to invite his enemies to commit the most detestable of the crimes.”»(Torné-Chavigny, id., p.111-112)

Discussion:
P. Guinard (2011, p.20) invites us to see one of the textual sources of this quatrain in the description by the Guide of the roads of France (Charles Estienne, Paris, 1552, p.48): « Sainct Michel, A main droicte fort chasteau [a fortified castle on the right]. Viglanne v. [ville = city] Resmiers v. Rivole v. ch.[chasteau = castle] Turin v. ch. arch.[archevêché = archbishopric] parl.[parlement = parliament]». But, we can find no castle nor fort in Viglanne nor in Resmiers. The first verse of the quatrain says that “At the fortified castle of Viglonne, a logistic base, ... ”, whose construction differs fundamentally from the plain enumeration of the Guide.

§ 652. The victory of Magenta

19th century:
§652. The victory of Magenta (1859.6.4): VIII-12.

VIII-12:
It shall appear close by Buffalora
The high and eminent toward, into Milan
The abbot of Foix with those of saint Maurice
Shall make the cheat clothed in rogue.


(Apparoistra au pres de Buffalorre
L’hault & procere entre dedans Milan
L’abbe de Foix avec ceux de saint morre
Feront la forbe abillez en vilan.)

Keys to the reading:
Procere: de procerus in Latin, «high, tall» (W);

Entre: As preposition, between [Buffalora and] Milan, therefore “ toward Milan ” with another preposition dedans (into). ‘Entre’ as a verb (to enter in the single third person of the present) does not fit this context;

The high and eminent: The emperor Napoleon III who entered Milan, tributary to Austria, after the Franco-Piedmontese victory of Magenta, very close to Buffalora;

The abbot of Foix: Napoleon III as deeply-devoted catholic emperor of France, which is represented by Foix, one of her cities (figure of synocdoche);

Saint morre: = saint Maurice, the martyred Christian general under Diocletian (†286A.D.), in whose memory was founded the famous order in Sardinia by Emmanuel-Philibert, duke of Savoy (Feller). ‘Morre’ is put to rhyme to ‘Buffalorre’. Cf. « Sardon, Mauris ( Maurice’s Sardinia )»-§666,VIII-6;

Those of saint Maurice: People of the kingdom of Sardinia, whose patron is saint Maurice (Torné-Chavigny, 1870, p.145);

La forbe: La fourberie. «Forbet, fourberie (cheat); Forbeter, tromper (to cheat)» (Godefroy). This single abstract concept symbolises and underlines the total of the vicious people involved;

Abillez: Habillés (clothed) which corresponds to the factual plurality of the cheat (la forbe), ‘abillez’ recalling Napoleon I’s ‘abeilles’ (bees), which suggest the factual approval of Garibaldi’s as soldiers under Napoleon III and Victor Emmanuel;

Vilan: Vilain (villain, rogue, scamp, scoundrel), to rhyme to Milan, signifying “ a fierce soldier ”; 

Feront la forbe abillez en vilan: The construction as follows: [S.] + V. + N. + Complement;

[They shall make] the cheat clothed in rogue: Garibaldi (and his followers), whom the Prophet will depreciate, notwithstanding his [their] military merits (cf. «clarté fulgure (lightning clarity)»-§666,VIII-6), as much as possible because of his [their] barbarism in contempt of the pope and the Christendom (cf. «monstre (monster)»-§637,IX-3; «monstre marin (marine monster)»-§638,V-88; «monstre vapin (rascal monster)»-§665,V-20; «le Barbare (the Barbary)»-§673,V-78; «le viellard nay au demi pourceau (the by half pig-born old man)»-§688,III-69; «le pourceau demy-homme (the demi-human pig), bestes brutes (brute beasts)»-§689,I-64; «amy aumi hom (a by half human friend)»-§669,VIII-44.

L’abbe de Foix avec ceux de saint morre Feront... : This is a material agreement of the subject in the singular form with the verb in the plural. Cf. III-78 (§328); Saint Simon, 1988, p.656.

Summary:
It shall appear close by Buffalora The high and eminent toward, into Milan: « When the emperor of Austria, Francis Joseph, in defiance of European diplomacy, passed the Ticino, France once more found herself face to face with this new aggressor and on the side of the oppressed. The war lasted scarcely two months. After the brilliant affair of Montebello, which defeated an attempted surprise on the part of the Austrians, the Franco-Piedmontese army concentrated round Alessandria; then by a bold and skilful movement turned the right of the Austrians, who had already passed the Ticino, and compelled them to recross that river. Caught between the army corps of General MacMahon and the guard at Magenta, the Austrians lost 7,000 killed or wounded and 8,000 prisoners (June 4th). Two days later the French regiments entered Milan.» (HH, XIII, p.135-136)

The abbot of Foix with those of saint Maurice Shall make the cheat clothed in rogue: « By shameful inactivity the Austrians allowed the Sardinians time to concentrate their 80,000 men around the fortress of Alessandria, where they were joined in May by several divisions of French troops, Garibaldi, meanwhile, with his “ Alpine hunters ” guarding the foot of the mountain whence he could harass the right wing of the Austrians and support the operations of the main army. The popularity of his name drew volunteers in flocks, and his appearance in the northern lake-region aroused the wildest enthusiasm among the people.

About the middle of May Napoleon himself arrived in Italy; although he left the actual lead to experienced generals, he took his place at the head of the troops. Count Stadion, sent out to reconnoitre with 12,000 men, came upon the French near Montebello May 20th, 1859, and was forced to retreat. The battle of Magenta followed, June 4th, in which the victory fell to the French. The bravery of the Austrians in this engagement, although they suffered from the greatest lack of necessary equipments, excited the admiration even of the enemy. Never did the defects of the Austrian administration become so glaringly apparent as during the campaign in Italy. Lombardy was the prize at stake in this battle of Magenta. Gyulay, incapable of rallying his scattered forces for a new attempt, immediately gave orders for a general retreat. Milan was evacuated in the next two days so hastily that the movement bore the character of a flight, the fortifications around Pavia and Piacenza were blown up, and the army of occupation was recalled from all its garrisons. On the 8th of June, Napoleon, at the side of Victor Emmanuel, made a triumphal entry into Milan, where he addressed the people in high-sounding speeches, the Austrians, meanwhile, continuing their retreat as far as the Mincio, where they took up a new position in the middle of a quadrangle of fortifications, Peschiera, Verona, Mantua, and Legnago» (HH, IX, p.604).

Discussion:
J.-Ch. de Fontbrune’s interpretation (1980, p.221-222): «The Emperor will appear near Buffalora, the noble and first personage [King of Italy] will make his entry into Milan, but the owner of Phoebus [Napoleon III] and those of the Holy Alliance will play a shameful trick» has several points of uncertainty. At first, the subject of the verb “will appear” is most likely to be “the noble and first personage”, that is to be identified with Napoleon III, whom the Prophet is used to appreciate as much as possible (cf. §634,IV-65 and §635,VIII-53), on the other hand the king of Sardinia Victor Emmanuel is viewed as “rouge (revolutionary)” by the Prophet (cf.§647,V-44; §676,V-22). Secondly, “saint morre” seems to be far off “the Saint Alliance”, even if the word ‘morre’ has the meaning of ‘mos’ in Latin (law, rule), for we cannot discover the word ‘alliance’ anywhere in the text. Finally, the policy of Napoleon III on this phase, though seen as treacherous at this moment to his Sardinian ally (whose interests cannot prevail upon the Prophet more than those of France), has been proved to be really indispensable internationally and effective as a whole in realizing the Italian independence in the long run (cf. Seignobos, 1921b, p.113-130; HH, IX, p.607-624).
