Main Events

Vittorio Amedeo I succeeded to little more than a title, but by his alliance with France, he managed to regain most of his territories. He proved a wise and popular ruler, and his early death was much deplored.[3] Through a peace treaty that followed the War of the Mantuan Succession (1628-31), he obtained parts of Montferrat, but was obliged to yield Pinerolo and the valley of Perosa to France. In 1635 he supported the French army in the struggle with the emperor for the Duchy of Milan.[5]
