(p.213) Chapter Nine Conclusion: The Legacy of Francis’s Rule
Venice and Venetia under the Habsburgs


Oxford University Press

This chapter both summarises the key findings of the book, and seeks to explain why Venice and Venetia had turned by 1848 from being extremely stable to being a hotbed of political unrest. It is stressed that many of the causes for 1848 had their origins in structural problems that were a legacy of Francis I's rule, yet the key reasons for insurrection were short-term, stemming both from an economic crisis, which dogged much of Europe, and the shortcomings of Francis I's successor, his son Ferdinand.

Keywords:   political unrest, Francis I, Ferdinand, economic crisis
