Question riddle

what is it?

it was the name of a king, whose victory by a river led to 400 years of bad music and violence.

it is an edible item named by some after the country where the first firework was ignited.

it was the symbol of support for a poison victim.

(for frieda) it was on the shirt worn by an 80's dreadlocked hero who worked for a dodgy italian politician.

first correct one word answer gets to set the next one.....

ok now i know what was on his shirt, but even if i match a king to that, i can't see the connection with something edible!

so there's a king.. still confused about the edible part.. or maybe that's supposed to be weird?


edited to add:

there's a front and backside!

anyway, i think i've figured it out. BUT-- the king's name is made of two words.. but my guess is that the thing on the rasta hero's shirt is just a clue for 2nd other word, which is the fireworks thingy right? that's the answer to the riddle, right RIGHT?
