Mussolini Comes into Power
In October tens of thousands of fascist supporters of Mussolini marched on Rome demanding power. The government of Premier Facta requested the implementation of martial law but King Emmanuel refused to sign the decree, leading to Facta's resignation. Emmanuel appointed Mussolini Prime Minister, and gave him dictatorial powers in an effort to restore order.
