Italian Wars - Ultimate | Duchy of Savoy
Leader: Duke Charles II. of Savoy
Due a succession of weak and short living Dukes, the Duchy of Savoy became more and more dependent to the Royal Crown of France. Especially, since the current Duke, Charles II, is still a child and his mother Blanche of Montferrat is the actual ruler over the Duchy. Though, it is still officially a vassal of the Holy Roman Empire and also being a constituent member of the Upper Rhenish Circle.
The only hope for the people of Savoy is now, that their Duke will grow up fast and become a powerful ruler. Otherwise it is most likely, that the Duchy will be crushed in the upcoming storm, which is rising on the horizon.
