The Duchy of Modena was founded by the Marquis Obizzo d'Este, Lord of Ferrara, which already in 1288, tied to the Este family history of this city. The main branch of the family died out with the death of Alfonso II in 1597, with Ferrara left to the Church in 1598. The Church made Ferrara the capital of the Duchy of Modena and transported all the papers already in Ferrara.

After Francesco III and his successor Ercole III, Modena joined the Duchy of Massa and Carrara, later joining the Duchy of Este at the dawn of the French Revolution. In 1796, it was incorporated into subsequent French political creations.1 vol, 136 pgs 2017 ITALY, SOLDIER SHOP

Since the fall of the Kingdom of Italy, the Duke of Modena, Francesco IV, had failed to arm a small army, but his successor Francis V, on the throne since 1846, did. The small army was closely linked and dependent on body of Austrian occupation in Lombardy-Venetia.

The army acquired a strong esprit de corps and a strong allegiance to the House of Austria-Este. Francis V abandoned Modena on June 11 1859, seven days after the battle of Magenta, as the Austrian army abandoned Lombardy to move under the fortresses of quadrilateral. The army of Francis V disbanded and was renamed Brigata Estense, numbering approximately 3600 men who were the last vestige of his army.1 vol, 136 pgs 2017 ITALY, SOLDIER SHOP
