2). ROME – 1923 – King George V , greeting Signor Mussolini on whom he conferred the G.C.B. The King and Queen paid a state visit to King Victor Emanuel and Elena in 1923, arriving in Rome on May 7th. The Illustrated News London (May 8 1923).

Signor Mussolini was created a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath. Their Majesties also visited his Holiness the Pope. In the section of political contacts we see George V. together with several international leaders. Here, during a visit to Italy in May 1923, he (left) shakes hands with “the founder of Fascismo […] Signor Mussolini in Rome.” The editors of the magazine avoid any critical notes; probably the King was not aware of what was going on in Rome at that time, anyway. Benito Mussolini had just made big steps in turning Italy into a totalitarian state ruled by his fascist party.
