Humbert I (14 March 1844 - 29 July 1900), King of Italy, authentic, autographed manuscript document (DS). This one page document measures approximately 7" x 11" in size and is dated November 7, 1898.

The document is addressed to the Prince of Montenegro, announcing the birth of Prince Amadeo Umbert, later King of Croatia under the Italian administration.

Humbert I was the son and successor of Victor Emmanuel II. A soldier by training, Humbert showed interest primarily in military affairs and foreign policy, and early expectations of his tolerance and liberalism were largely unfulfilled. Under the influence of his conservative wife, Margherita, Humbert became increasingly authoritarian, favoring the imperialistic and pro-German policies of premier Francesco Crispi and disregarding the recommendations of parliamentary leaders.

His orientation helped lead to the conclusion of the Triple Alliance. Escaping two attempts on his life, he fell victim to an assassin at Monza. His son, Victor Emmanuel III, succeeded him.

This untranslated document is crisply signed at the conclusion by Humbert I. It is in good to very good condition, with overall light toning not affecting the signature. The document contains some scattered creases and expected intersecting fold lines.
