Victor Emmanuel III, born November 11, 1869, was the son of Umberto I and Margherita of Savoy, and the grandson of Victor Emmanuel II. He married Elena of Montenegro, the daughter of Nicholas I, in 1896. After the assassination of his father by an anarchist in 1900, he ascended to the throne. This king is well known to numismatists for having promoted the publication of the Corpus Nummorum Italicorum (CNI) after 1910, the bible for collectors of Italian coins. During the First World War, Italy sided with the Allies after 1915, but suffered many defeats before stabilizing the front at Caporetto against the Austrians. As constitutional king, he was the hostage or the accomplice of the fascists after 1922. Benito Mussolini (1883-1945) was the real leader of the administration, the Duce. The Lateran Treaty in 1929 ended sixty years of conflict with the Papacy. Emperor of Ethiopia after the invasion of the country by Italian troops in 1936 and King of Albania in 1939, he let himself be dragged into the Second World War. After the landing of the Allies in Sicily, and in southern Italy, in a burst of energy, he overthrew Mussolini but had to go into exile. He abdicated in favour of his son Umberto II in 1946 and died in Alexandria on December 28, 1947.

Coin took a while to arrive; little concerned by lack of communication from seller. However, quality of the coin is excellent (better than the description) & far outweighs the delay. Would recommend.
