 "//​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...
