In 1848 King Ferdinand II of the the Two Sicilies was forced to grant a constitution patterned on the French Charter of 1830, advocating the removal of royal power to instigate legislation, and to concern themselves only with the application of laws. In March 1848, granted by Ferdinand II, Naples was flooded with leaflets printed in which people could freely express their thoughts on men and events of that period. One of these particular leaflets focused on two famous men: Monsignor Celestino Cocle of San Giovanni Rotondo, confessor and confidant of the royal family, and Francesco Saverio Del Carretto, Minister of Police. Monsignor Celestino Cocle (1783-1857) was Superior General of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer. He held the position as Governor and Consultor General for King Ferdinand II. Francesco Saverio del Carretto (1777-1861) was a minister of police for King Ferdinand II, but following the start of the Revolution in 1848, he saw no other choice than to escape, and he fled to France.
