Prince Amedeo of Savoy

Duke of Aosta, and Prince of Spain


Prince Amedeo of Savoy was the second son of King Vittorio Emanuele II (King of Piedmont, Savoy, Sardinia and, later, first King of Italy) and of Archduchess Adelaide of Austria. He was styled the Duke of Aosta from birth. In 1867 his father yielded to the entreaties of parliamentary deputy Francisco Cassins, and on 30 May of that year, Amedeo was married to Donna Maria Vittoria dal Pozzo. The King initially opposed the match on the grounds that her family was of insufficient rank, as well as his hopes for his son’s marriage to a German princess.
He has been spending his days in London as of late as part of a vacation of sorts, and has been seen frequenting the Flaming Flamingo.
