Requiem Mass, performed in Santa Croce, Florence, on the anniversary of the death of King Charles Albert, and of the martyrs of Italian independence (1873), added to his renown. King Charles Albert (Italian: Carlo Alberto Amedeo di Savoia) (02/10/1798 28/07/1849) was the King of Piedmont-Sardinia from 1831 to 1849. He succeeded his distant cousin Charles Felix, and his name is bound with the first Italian statute and the First War of Independence (184849). He abdicated after his forces were defeated by the Austrian army at the Battle of Novara (1849), and died in exile soon thereafter.
