Hey!
I personally don't do German unification, I do Spanish Civil war instead. But, I do Italian unification, and my teachers and friends seem to think Garibaldi's role in unification is highly likely!
Hope this helps, i'm revising it at the moment!

Thanks for the reply, by the looks of it last years exam paper was the best so far but I am ready for a Garibaldi question.
I suppose the paper just depends on luck of the question i.e who its about, what event and time period.
Best of luck!

The way i'm looking at is this; if I know my key individuals, I know how each state was unified and I know about my revolutions, these factors prepare me for just about anything!
Good luck to you too!

Catholic church came up last year I think? So most likely won't come up again (I hope). And every year on Italy for the past 5 years there has been an individual's effect on unification, which are the same 4 people as factors (Garibaldi, V.Emmanuel, Cavour and Napoleon).
That's what i'm cramming now haha

last year was victor emmanuel as a figurehead and france from 1858 to 70, I wouldve liked the france question tbh.
I do think Garibaldi is likely to come up because he's not been an option in any of the past 5 exam papers and the time period around Garibaldi from the end of the 1850s onwards is where I am most confident so hopefully thats an option.

Yea, I agree with you. I personally hate the pre 50s because I keep getting the revolutions mixed up. I always prefer a key individual - I do English Lit/Lang and Sociology as well so I like being able to argue things and i find it a whole lot easier with individuals!

Yeah me too i'm focused on the second half of the 19th century as its only a 20 period with several events only, but in the past 5 exam papers there's been a single question on the revolutions from 1920-49 so I am just hoping for Garibaldi.

They are a large area of the topic, so it is likely they will come up. I'm personally relying on the alternative question to them if either of them do come up XD

okay so what was Garibaldi's role?

My teacher think there will be a turning point question. I hope so because you can spend less time on content.

Garibaldi;
- In 1860 Garibaldi would take his expeditionary army of 1000, known as the March of 1000, and sail to the island of Sicily. Escorted mistakenly by a detachment of the British Navy, the Garibaldini's would land at Marsala and capture the island of Sicily.
- Soon after that, Garibaldi would use Sicily as a springboard to attack mainland Italy and capture the southern states including Naples through to 1861 and with a force within the tens of thousands by now he would march towards Rome.
- Whilst the King of Piedmont, Victor Emmanuel II was personally not an obstacle to Garibaldi's attempt on Rome, it was Cavour who saw the foreign implications of such a coup with Napoleon III of the French Empire as an incentive to prevent Garibaldi's initial march on Rome.
- In 1861 Garibaldi would meet a force headed by King Victor Emmanuel at Teano and surprisingly would not meet at conflict by merely agree to hand over the control of the southern and central Italian states for Victor Emmanuel to rule over collectively.
- Whilst Rome at this stage was seemingly untouchable this did raise the question of Rome to the King. Garibaldi's failed expeditions to take Rome initially in 1862 at Aspromonte and again in 1868 raised the significance of Rome to a unified Italian peninsula.

it is very likely that their will be a question on a key individual;
Victor Emmanuel came up last year so is an unlikely return.
Napoleon III is likely to come up also or at least be mention in your essay and may appear in the form of France.
Cavour is also likely to come up.
Garibaldi I would say is the most likely to appear as he hasn't appeared at all in a question for the past 5 exam papers.
