My father served in King Umbert's army, not wanting to suport Mussolini and the Fascists during World War II. Many, many Italiains did NOT favor Mussolini. Dictators often wrest power int the way that Thrasymacus of Plato's Republic described: Micght makes right. King Umbert was well-regarded and loved by the people, egalitarian, kind, brave, regal in the best sense of the word, handsome, learned, and dutiful to his country. The loss of the monarchy in Italy was a sad occasion for many. There was a period of time in the 1970's when Christian Demoncrats had primacy in the government, and ran the country acceptably well. But the monarchy was missed because of its representation of the finer things in Italian culture, and the vision that King Umbert had. He believed in the dignity not only of the House of Savoy, but of the people of Italy.

Hi there:)
My dad as well served his army! And later when it all came down, my father became a Partigiano. I am extremely proud of him for having fought against Mussolini. He also has a highest distinguishing medal of honour for having been a hero.
You are absolutely right that most people are unaware that not all Italians were pro Mussolini! I was in Italy 2 summers ago and the traces of anti-fascism are everywhere in my parts of Northern Italy. The Partisans there are true heroes. As well, the fall of the monarchy is still something regretted. Thanks so much for posting this.

For a short primer of Italian princes and kings, there's a list on the "Mad Monarchist" blog:http://madmonarchist.blogspot.com/2011/11/italian-unification-characters.html
