The Black Nobility or Black Aristocracy (Italian: "nobiltà nera"
or "aristocrazia nera" are Roman aristocratic families who sided with
the Papacy under Pope Pius IX after the Savoy family-led army of the Kingdom of
Italy entered Rome on September 20, 1870, overthrew the Pope and the Papal
States, and took over the Quirinal Palace, and any nobles subsequently ennobled
by the Pope prior to the 1929 Lateran Treaty.
