Description[edit | edit source]

Savoy emerged in the Western Alps after the disintegration of the Burgundian Kingdom. Its dynasty established control over Sardinia and Piedmont and later all of Italy. Savoy's growth and survival over the centuries were not based on spectacular conquests, but on gradual territorial expansion through marriage and methodical and highly manipulative political acquisitions. Savoy itself was annexed by France in 1860.
