Coppa Italia

The Coppa Italia is an Italian football annual cup competition. Its first edition was won by Vado; the second tournament, scheduled in the 1926–27 season, was cancelled during the round of 32. The third edition was not held until 1935 -- 36; the events of World War II interrupted the tournament after the 1942–43 season, it did not resume again until 1958 where it has been played annually continuously since. Juventus is the competition's most successful club with 13 wins, followed by Roma with 9. Juventus has contested the most finals followed by Roma with 17 finals; the holder can wear a cockade of Italy. The winner automatically qualifies for both the UEFA Europa League group stage and the Supercoppa Italiana the following year; the competition is a knockout tournament with pairings for each round made in advance. Each tie is played with the exception of the two-legged semi-finals. If a match is drawn, extra time is played. In the event of a draw after 120 minutes, a penalty shoot-out is contested.

As well as being presented with the trophy, the winning team qualifies for the UEFA Europa League. If the winners have qualified for the UEFA Champions League via Serie A, or are not entitled to play in UEFA competitions for any reason, the place goes to the next highest placed finisher in the league table. There are a total of eight rounds in the competition; the competition begins in August with the first round and is contested only by the lowest-ranked clubs – those outside the top two divisions. Clubs playing in Serie B join in during the second round and the 12 lowest-ranked teams in Serie A based on the previous league season's positions begin the competition in the third round before August is over; the remaining eight Serie A teams join the competition in the fourth round in January, at which point 16 teams remain. The round of 16, the quarter-finals and the first leg of the semi-finals are played in quick succession after the fourth round and the second leg of the semi-final is played a couple of months later.

The rather unusual two-leg final was eliminated for the 2007–08 edition and a single-match final is now played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Notes 1 The 1922 tournament was contested only by minor teams, the biggest clubs having left FIGC to form a private league of their own. 2 Although 72 tournaments have been contested, only 71 championships have been assigned. The 1926–27 tournament was cancelled in the round of 32. Bold is the winner of the finals. Note: from 1968 to 1971, FIGC introduced a final group instead of semifinals and finals. For statistical equity, only champions and runners-up of those groups are counted as finalists. Moreover, in 1971, a decisive match between the two best clubs was played to assign the cup; this is a list of television broadcasters which provide coverage of Coppa Italia, as well as the Supercoppa Italiana and maybe exclude the Serie A matches. The Supercoppa and Coppa Italia has a broadcasting agreement with the public broadcaster RAI. Selected matches of the Supercoppa and Coppa Italia are streamed through Serie A YouTube channel in the unsold markets with highlights available in all territories.

Louis XVII of France

Louis XVII, born Louis-Charles, was the younger son of King Louis XVI of France and Queen Marie Antoinette. He was at birth given the title Duke of Normandy, his older brother, Louis Joseph, died in June 1789, a little over a month before the start of the French Revolution. At his brother's death he became the heir apparent to the throne and the Dauphin of France, a title he held until 1791, when the new constitution accorded the heir apparent the style of Prince Royal of France; when his father was executed on 21 January 1793, during the middle-period of the French Revolution, he became "King of France" in the eyes of the royalists. However, since France was by a republic, Louis XVII had been imprisoned from August 1792 until his death from illness in 1795 at the age of 10, he never governed, his title stems from monarchist theory. His title was the reason why on his death his uncle took the regnal name of Louis XVIII of France rather than Louis XVII, retaining it upon the Bourbon Restoration in 1814.

Louis-Charles de France was born at the Palace of Versailles, the second son and third child of his parents, Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. He was named after his father and his mother's favourite sister Maria Carolina, Queen of Naples and Sicily, known as Charlotte in the family, Charles being the masculine version of her name, his younger sister, was born a little over a year later. He became the Dauphin on the death of his elder brother, Louis-Joseph, on 4 June 1789; as customary in royal families, Louis-Charles was cared for by multiple people. Queen Marie Antoinette appointed governesses to look after all three of her children. Louis-Charles' original governess was Yolande de Polastron, duchesse de Polignac, who left France on the night of 16–17 July 1789, at the outbreak of the Revolution, at the urging of Louis XVI, she was replaced by the marquise Louise Élisabeth de Tourzel. Additionally, the queen selected Agathe de Rambaud to be the official nurse of Louis-Charles. Alain Decaux wrote: "Madame de Rambaud was in charge of the care of the Dauphin from the day of his birth until 10 August 1792.

During these seven years, she never left him, she cradled him, took care of him, dressed him, comforted him, scolded him. Many times, more than Marie Antoinette, she was a true mother for him"; some have suggested that Axel von Fersen, romantically linked with Marie Antoinette, was the father of her son. The fact that Louis Charles was born nine months after he returned to court was noted, but this theory was debunked by most scholars, who reject it, observing that the time of his conception corresponded in the time that Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette had spent a lot of time together. Marie Antoinette, who gained massive weight because of her pregnancies, including this one, retained her charisma with an imposing figure in her court, where she had lot of admirers, but she remained a faithful, strong-willed wife and a stern but loving mother. On 6 October 1789, the royal family was forced by a Parisian mob composed of women to move from Versailles to the Tuileries Palace in Paris, where they spent the next three years as prisoners under the daily surveillance of the national guards who did not spare any humiliation to the royal family.

The family lived a secluded life, Marie Antoinette dedicated most of her time to her two children under the daily surveillance of the national guards who kept her hands behind her back and searched everybody from the Queen to the children to see if any letters were smuggled to the royal prisoner. On 21 June 1791, the family tried to escape in what is known as the Flight to Varennes, but the attempt failed. After the family was recognized, they were brought back to Paris; when the Tuileries Palace was stormed by an armed mob on 10 August 1792, the royal family sought refuge at the Legislative Assembly. On 13 August, the royal family was imprisoned in the tower of the Temple. At first, their conditions were not harsh, but they were prisoners and were re-styled as "Capets" by the newborn Republic. On 11 December, at the beginning of his trial, Louis XVI was separated from his family. At his birth, Louis-Charles, a Fils de France, was given the title of Duke of Normandy, and, on 4 June 1789, when Louis Joseph, Dauphin of France, his elder brother, the four-year-old became Dauphin of France, title he held until September 1791, when France became a constitutional monarchy.

Under the new constitution, the heir-apparent to the throne of France "Dauphin", was restyled Prince Royal. Louis-Charles held that title until the fall of the monarchy on 21 September 1792. At the death of his father on 21 January 1793, royalists and foreign powers intent on restoring the monarchy held him to be the new king of France, with the title of Louis XVII. From his exile in Hamm, in today's North Rhine-Westphalia, his uncle, the Count of Provence and future Louis XVIII, who had emigrated on 21 June 1791, appointed himself Regent for the young imprisoned king. Following Louis XVI's execution, plots were hatched for the escape of the prisoners from the Temple, the chief of which were engineered by the Chevalier de Jarjayes, the Baron de Batz, Lady Atkyns. All came to nothing. On 3 July, Louis-Charles was separated from his mother and put in the care of Antoine Simon, a cobbler, named his guardian by the Committ
