Mussolini took power in 1922 via coup d'etat and became Prime Minister of Italy. Creating a party espousing the ideals of fascism, he consolidated his dictatorship by means of a secret police to arrest and execute individuals critical of his regime and policies.
Mussolini claimed to have supernatural abilities and would often threaten his political rivals and sometimes other leaders with magical force if his wishes were not met.
During World War II, he attempted to conquer Greece but failed, resulting in his fall from the throne when his own political party denounced him. He was imprisoned but later freed by German special forces, but then was later caught and executed by partisans before being hung upside down.
There is no evidence that he was actually magical in any way, and the only wands in his collection discovered after the war were found to be entirely hollow or simply wooden / plastic sticks with no other notable features aside from being an attempt at mimicry of a real channeling device.
Mussolini was highly skilled at propaganda and attempted to cultivate a cult of personality around himself. One of the most infamous examples of this was his claim that he was an extremely powerful Rm user.
