The Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St. George, in collaboration with the Scripta Maneant publishing house, is pleased to present the definitive work that faithfully retraces the story of the Royal House of Bourbon of the Two Sicilies, with a signed introduction of His Royal Highness, Prince Charles of Bourbon Two Sicilies, Duke of Castro, and Grand Master of the Dynastic Orders.
The bilingual Italian/English edition, with a limited printing of 399 copies, includes 5 commemorative silver plate medals on which are engraved the seal of the Kingdom on one side, and on the other the profiles of the Kings of the Two Sicilies, made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Francesco Di Rauso Collection, and a facsimile reproduction of Louis Brion de la Tour’s 1767 map of the States of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
The accurate historical research and ample photographic corpus are the fruit of a collaboration with the greatest Italian historical archives: the State Archive of Naples, the Royal Site of Carditello Foundation, the FS Foundation Archive, the Museum Center of Agrarian Sciences of Frederic II University in Naples, the National Museum of Saint Martin, and Scripta Maneant’s exclusive photographic campaign at the Saint Charles Theatre of Naples and Saint Severus Chapel.
