The Kingdom of Sicily and Sardinia
The history of Sicily and of Sardinia is rather different. For a very short period both islands were controlled by the same kingdom. In 1717 Spain conquered Sardinia and the next year Sicily. However, by the Treaty of The Hague in 1720 Spain and the Empire recognised the re-allotment of Sicily to the Habsburgs and Sardinia to Savoy.
