Historical background


SAVOY - DUCHY OF SAVOY - EMMANUEL-PHILIBERT

(1553-1580)

Emmanuel Philibert (1528-1580), born July 8, 1528 in Chambéry, was the son of Charles II and Beatrice of Portugal. Between 1541 and 1553 he lived in exile. Charles Quint appointed him Governor of Flanders in 1551 and he succeeded his father in 1553. Since the death of his mother in 1538, he was Count of Asti but in fact only owned Nice. With the treaty of Cateau-Cambrésis, on April 3, 1559, he recovers his states and marries Marguerite de France, the sister of Henri II. He died on August 30, 1580 and his son Charles-Emmanuel I succeeded him (1580-1630).
