Jeanne de Savoie
Vicomtesse de Limoges

Main Events

After her father's death, she claimed the succession to Savoy, but then ceded her rights to Count Aymon in 1329. After her marriage, she renewed her claims , but renounced them in 1339 after an agreement was reached. She received Limoges as part of her marriage contract. Before her death, she bequeathed her claims to Savoy to Philippe de France, duc d'Orléans, through her will, but King Philippe VI transferred them to Count Amédée VI of Savoy, Jeanne's cousin, in return for the castles of Milly and Bicêtre. Her marriage required papal dispensation.[1]
