 "//​This isn't so much a cliche that appears in serious TLs, I think, but some things I see from time to time in the map thread are these strange entities called the '​Kingdom of the Three Sicilies',​ or the '​Kingdom of the Two Italies',​ or, God forbid, something hilariously ridiculous like the '​Kingdom of the Three Sicilies, Four Italies, and Two Lombardies',​ usually resulting from some unspecified alternate unification of Italy, or southern Italy. I'm incredibly annoyed when I see these because it's absolute nonsense, and the only excusable version is the OTL '​Kingdom of the Two Sicilies'​. But even then... I mean, that was really kind of weird, giving a country a poetic name like that. One would think they'd have just merged them both back into the '​Kingdom of Sicily'​."//​ "//​This isn't so much a cliche that appears in serious TLs, I think, but some things I see from time to time in the map thread are these strange entities called the '​Kingdom of the Three Sicilies',​ or the '​Kingdom of the Two Italies',​ or, God forbid, something hilariously ridiculous like the '​Kingdom of the Three Sicilies, Four Italies, and Two Lombardies',​ usually resulting from some unspecified alternate unification of Italy, or southern Italy.

 So, take this advice in mind if you're doing a map or flag that shows an independent southern Italy or a differently unified Italian peninsula. So, take this advice in mind if you're doing a map or flag that shows an independent southern Italy or a differently unified Italian peninsula.
