Following Napoleons rise to power in Italy, the Lira was established in 1807 as an equal to the French Franc. When the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy fell in 1814, the Lira remained in use, replacing other currencies in regions such as Venice, Tuscany, and Sicily. As Italy was united in 1861, the Lira became the countrys official currency until it was replaced by the Euro in 2002.
