Rome was a department of the First French Empire in present-day Italy. It was named after the city of Rome. It was formed in 1808, when the Papal States were annexed by France, and was known as the Département du Tibre (after the Tiber river) before being renamed in 1810. Following the conquest of the Eternal City, Napoleon gave his son the title of King of Rome.
The department was disbanded after the defeat of
Napoleon in 1814. At the Congress of Vienna, the Papal States were restored to Pius VII. Its territory corresponds approximately to the modern Italian region of Lazio.
