Excerpt from The Monarchs and the People of Europe: Their Condition, Resources, and Attitude With Respect to Each Other; Comprising a Review of the Recent Revolutions and the Present State of Each Country Meanwhile, spurred or warned by the example Of the pope and the enthusiasm of the Romans, other Italian princes bowed to the feeling of the time, and took some steps in the path of reform. The King of Sardinia, the Grand-duke of Tuscany, and the King of Naples, promised constitutions, written and precise, to their subjects, and actually adopted measures for making their promises effective. The popular enthusiasm reached Lombardy. Movements took place at Milan, but they were crushed by the Austrian government with even more than wonted promptitude and severity. Bayonets and discipline proved too much for unguided zeal. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
