ancient Ligurian republic[edit]

The Text in the Gerneral Treaty of the Congress of Vienna was:

ART. LXXXIX. The countries called Imperial Fiefs, formerly united to the ancient Ligurian republic, are definitively united to the states of his Majesty the King of Sardinia, in the same manner as the rest of the Genoese states; and the inhabitants of these countries shall enjoy the same rights and privileges as those of the states of Genoa, specified in the preceding Article.

This suggests that the Powers considered there to be a difference between the Napoleonic Ligurian Republic and the "ancient Ligurian republic". Someone needs to check if the republic was the name for the area at some time before the Napoleonic period. --PBS (talk) 16:58, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
