History & Politics
In 222 B.C. the city was conquered by the Romans and was annexed into the Roman Empire, getting the name Mediolanum.
Milan was a democratic government until 1277 when it was seized by the Visconti family of Milan.
After the Visconti's died off, the power was then seized by the Sforza families.
During the last years of the Sforza family reign, the power was then assumed by Spain under King Charles I for the next 170 years.
War broke out in the 18th Century giving the power to Austria.
In May 1796 Milan was taken over by Napoleon, but after his reign Austria recovered Milan.
In 1859 Austria was run out and Milan was annexed into the Kingdom of Piedmont, which later became the Kingdom of Italy.
After being annexed into the Kingdom of Italy, Rome was made the seat of government and Milan was made the economical and cultural capital of Italy.
