Main Events

After his mother's death in 1721, and his father's departure for Savoy as governor, Carlo was sent to Chambéry. He began with a military career, but changed to a religious one and joined the Canons Regular of Sainte-Geneviéve in Paris in 1730. Later, his father sent him to Rome where he continued his religious studies at the Pontifical Academy of Ecclesiastical Nobles. He returned to Piedmont in 1732 to study philosophy at the University of Turin. He celebrated his first mass in 1736 in the Barnabite church of S. Dalmazzo, Turin. He then moved into the abbey of San Benigno di Fruttuaria. In 1749, he consecrated the church at Superga, and in 1750, he married King Vittorio Amedeo III and the Infanta of Spain. Soon after, he presided over the Shroud of Turin, and in the following year, he was involved in the translation of the body of San Carlo Borromeo. He took part in the conclave of 1758 which elected Pope Clement XIII, the conclave of 1769 elcting Pope Clement XIV, and the conclave of 1774-75 electing Pope Pius VI.
