Carlo Troya (also spelled Troja; 7 June 1784 – 28 July 1858) was a historian and politician who served as Prime Minister of the Two Sicilies from 3 April 1848 until 15 May 1849. Politically, he was a liberal Neo-Guelph who supported Italian unification. His primary historical interest was the study of the Early Middle Ages, to which he made lasting contributions.
Master of Law, he was involved in 1820-1821 Neapolitan insurrections: holding the position of Basilicata Intendant, he worked for the liberal review “Minerva napolitana”, reason why he was sent into exile from 1824 to 1826. Back in Naples, without completely abandoning his political activity, he devoted his time to historical research in particular on the Middle Ages and Dante biography (Del Veltro allegorico di Dante).[note 1]
On 15 May 1848, with a coup d'état, Ferdinand II dissolved the democratic Parliament, dismissed Carlo Troja and replaced his Ministry with one composed exclusively of conservative elements and led by Gennaro Spinelli di Cariati.
His brother Ferdinando Troya was Ferdinand II Prime Minister from 1852 to 1859.
On 29 August 1854, Carlo Troya was elected Accademia della Crusca corresponding member.
He died while living in Naples.
