Emilio Bandiera
Birth: Jun. 20, 1819
Venice
Provincia di Venezia
Veneto, Italy
Death: Jul. 23, 1844
Provincia di Cosenza
Calabria, Italy

Italian Patriot. Along with his brother Attilio, they were sons of Baron Francesco Bandiera, an admiral in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. They also belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Navy, but from an early age they wanted Italian freedom and unity, and corresponded with members of La Giovine Italia, a patriotic and revolutionary society. They began to spread propaganda among the men of the Austrian navy, and planned to seize a warship, but they were betrayed and fled to Corfu. Rumours reached them of trouble in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. The brothers formed a group men ready to sacrifice their lives and set sail on June 12, 1844. They landed near Cotrone and planned to liberate the political prisoners, but they were betrayed by one of their party. They were all taken prisoner and escorted to Cosenza where all of them, except for the one who had betrayed them, were condemned to death. On the 23rd of July the brothers and their nine companions were executed. The effect of this was felt throughout Italy and the brothers were considered to be martyrs.  (bio by: Bunny Boiler)
