Charles Emmanuel I (1562-1630) is the son of Emmanuel Philibert and Marguerite de Valois, sister of Henry II, who is also dead at the time of festivities on the occasion of their marriage. He succeeded his father in 1580 and wife Catherine of Habsburg, daughter of Philip II of Spain in 1585. After the death of Henry III, he supported the League and invaded Provence in 1590. The war ended with the Treaty of Vervins May 2, 1598 but resumed in 1600 for not actually end in 1601 by the Peace of Lyon where the Duke of Savoy sees confirm the marquis of Saluzzo in exchange for Bresse, Bugey and Gex which are annexed to the kingdom of France. On the death of Francesco Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, Charles-Emmanuel claimed the inheritance of the duchy; war broke out against Spain in 1614 and ends in 1617 with the Peace of Madrid. The war continues, this time with France in 1628 after the death of Ferdinand Gonzaga. The French invaded Savoy and Fort Pinerolo was taken July 21, 1630. Charles died five days later.
