The Kingdom of Naples (Italian: Regno di Napoli) was a country in southern Italy that existed between 1808 and 1944, when it was officially combined with the Papal States due to its support of the Edmondian regime in the French Civil War. The kingdom, while historically associated with Sicily, came to develop independently following the rise of the Murat dynasty in Naples and the Bourbon survivalist state centered at Palermo.

By the 1920's, the Neapolitan kingdom was one of Europe's mightiest states, its economy dwarfing England, Spain and Portugal's, and was one of France's most reliable allies in the struggles in the Colonial conflicts in North Africa. Many Neapolitans consider the Republic of Italy to be the true successor state of the kingdom.
