In December 1847, together with her children, she migrated to her husband’s native land, Italy. In the Revolution of 1848-49 she fought as an officer in Garibaldi’s force during the defense of the Roman Republic of 1849. She died during the arduous campaign after the fall of Rome, when Garibaldi’s troops were seeking to break through to the Venetian Republic.
