The remains of Italy's King Victor Emmanuel III were repatriated from Egypt and interred in a family mausoleum Sunday in northern Italy, 71 years after Italians rejected the monarchy in a referendum and the country's royals went into exile. The return of the king who for a time backed Benito Mussolini's fascist dictatorship dismayed members of Italy's tiny Jewish community and Italians devoted to the memory of the partisan fighters who tried to free the country from fascism's grip during World War II.The return of the king's remains, and the use of an Italian air force plane to bring them from Egypt, angered some who remain proud of the Italians who resisted fascism.Ruth Dureghello, the head of Rome's Jewish community, expressed "much bitterness" that the king's remains were now interred in Italy.
