Savoy had been successful in the War of Spanish Succession, gaining the title of king of Sicily but later exchanging it with Sardinia. However, Victor Amadeus in his late year was dominated by shyness and sadness, probably under the effect of some mental illness. In the end, on September 3, 1730, he abdicated, leaving the throne to Charles (nicknamed "Carlino" for his gracile and unpleasant building).

After some time spent in his residence of Chambéry, however, Victor Amadeus started again to intervene in Charles' government, although this did not impede the latter to reintroduce the feasts and the general gay atmosphere that had been abolished from Turin in the former years. In the summer 1731, after having recovered from a potentially fatal illness, Victor Amadeus returned to the throne. He accused his son of incompetence and established himself in Moncalieri: however, Charles Emmanuel managed to have Victor Amadeus arrested by the Crown's Council, in order to prevent him from attacking Milan and probably causing an invasion of Piedmont.

The War of Polish Succession

In the War of the Polish Succession Charles Emmanuel sided for the French- backed king Stanislaw I. After the treaty of alliance signed in Turin, on October 28, 1733 he marched on Milan and occupied Lombardy without significant losses. However, when France tried to convince Philip V of Spain to join the coalition, he asked to receive Milan and Mantua in exchange. This was not acceptable for Charles Emmanuel, as it would recreate a Spanish domination in Italy as it had been in the previous centuries. While negotiations continued about the matter, the Savoy-French-Spanish troops attacked Mantua under the supreme command of Charles Emmanuel himself.

Charles Emmanuel was involved in the War of Austrian Succession, which he sided for Maria Theresa of Austria, with financial and naval support from England. After noteworthy but inconclusive initially successes, he had to face the French-Spanish invasion of Savoy and, after a failed allied attempt to conquer the Kingdom of Naples, the county of Nizza. When the enemy army invaded Piedmont, in 1744 he personally defended Cuneo by the Spanish-French besiegers. The following year, with some 20,000 men was facing and invasion of two armies for a total of some 60,000 troops. The important strongholds of Alessandria, Asti and Casale fell. In 1746, after received reinforces from Austria, he was able to capture back the first two. In 1747 he obtained a crushing victory over the French at the battle of Assietta, and his territories were saved when the main battleground moved northwards to the Netherlands.
