ROTFLMAO!!!

A weak temporal leader and Sovereign of Papal States, yes. 

I don't understand how anyone could consider someone a "strong" leader if he loses 100% of his country's land and population to a foreign nation. And the fact that his successors were only able to recover less than 1% of the Papal States (Vatican City State) goes to show how destructive Pius IX's loss was. Temporally, he was a LOSER who should have resigned in disgrace. I don't know how he lived with himself after such a massive defeat. Many a heads of state have resigned and drunk themselves to death in exile over lesser losses. Pope Pius IX seemed to be a very good Pope when it came to spiritual matters, though.
Hermann Kanzler didn't view Blessed Pius IX as a loser, after the seizure of Rome he refused to go home he remained at his Holy Father's side in the rest of his life in the Vatican, until his own death in 1888.
