Fact 30

I am not entirely certain why I decided to go with this fact today, however I have a suspicion it has something to do with my love for history.

Of the 3 main leaders who formed the Axis in World War II, Benito Mussolini of Italy, Adolf Hitler of Germany, and Hirohito of Japan, Mussolini actually was in power first. Mussolini became the main authority in Italy by 1922 and made himself dictator by 1925. Emperor Hirohito was crowned prince of Japan in 1926. Finally, Hitler became chancellor of Germany in 1933 and became dictator in 1934.
