Very interesting... Especially the Miniatures! My only regret is that they are not larger so I could study the faces closer! Thank you for the links!

*Known as the "May Queen" of Italy...did the Italian monarchy end after she died?

The monarchy in Italy ended with the referendum of June 2, 1946.
Maria Josè died in 2001.

I think the family ended the exile a few years ago right ?

Yes, you are right, the exile ended in 2002.

Yes, they were a very beautiful couple...the last royal couple of Italy.

We have many books about King Umberto II and the house of Savoy in general here in Italy (obviously), maybe there are versions translated in english.
