Lines of succession in Southern Victory


While Dom Pedro II was still very popular in 1889, he himself was in poor health and increasingly weary of the imperial system. Moreover, various factions among elite citizens had come to believe that a republic ruled by a dictator would be a superior system. Conservative were still angry that they were not compensated for the abolition of slavery in 1888. Others were horrified by the prospect that Pedro's daughter Isabel would succeed him; aside from the obvious misogyny, Isabel's husband was French, and many feared Brazil would be de facto ruled by a foreigner.

Monarch of Italy (rescued from obscurity)

King of Italy (Italian: Re d'Italia; Latin: Rex Italiae) was the title given to the ruler of the Kingdom of Italy after the fall of the Western Roman Empire. The first to take the title was Odoacer, a barbarian military leader, in the late 5th century, followed by the Ostrogothic kings up to the mid-6th century. With the Frankish conquest of Italy in the 8th century, the Carolingians assumed the title, which was maintained by subsequent Holy Roman Emperors throughout the Middle Ages. The last Emperor to claim the title was Charles V in the 16th century. During this period, the holders of the title were crowned with the Iron Crown of Lombardy.
