The Kingdom of Italy as a unitary state was officially proclaimed on March 17, 1861 during the final phase of the period called the Risorgimento. The Kingdom was unified under the Savoy dynasty after the Second War of Independence fought by Vittorio Emanuele II King of Sardinia precisely to achieve Italian national unification. The unification continued in 1866 with the Third Italian War of Independence, and in 1870 with the annexation of the Papal States with the consequent capture of Rome. The completion of the national territory took place only on November 4, 1918, at the end of the First World War, the day on which the Austro-Hungarian Empire surrendered to Italy. In 1919, with the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye during which the winning allied states decided the dismemberment of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the future of the Austrian Republic, Italy obtained the endorsement for the annexation of Trento, Trieste, Istria and part of Dalmatia, all territories in which the Italian language was spoken.
