The Kinrick o Naples (Italian: Regno di Napoli), comprisin the soothren pairt o the Italian Peninsula, wis the remainder o the auld Kinrick o Sicily efter secession o the island o Sicily as a result o the Sicilian Vespers rebellion o 1282.[1] Kent tae contemporaries as the Kinrick o Sicily as it wis the de jure remnant o that kinrick, it is dubbed Kinrick o Naples tae distinguish it frae the island-based polity. During much o its existence, the realm wis contestit atween French an Aragonese dynasties. In 1816, it again merged wi the island-based Kinrick o Sicily tae furm the Kinrick o the Twa Sicilies.
