Verona is a city straddling the Adige river in Veneto, northern Italy. Following Austria's defeat in the Battle of Sadowa in Bohemia on July 3, 1866, Verona, along with the rest of Venetia, plus Mantova, were annexed to the Kingdom of Italy. Thus the Austrian-controlled Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia (1815-1866) was no more.
