The House of Savoy or in Italian, "La Casa di Savoia," or simply Casa Savoia, (or "Savoie", French) is a dynasty of nobles who traditionally had their domain in Savoy, a region that includes present-day Piemonte, other parts of Northern Italy, and a smaller region in France. Thus, the house is neither an Italian or French reigning house, but simply of the region of Savoy. Because all of the rulers of Savoy, and Savoy itself, are Italian in official documents, the house itself may be more Italian than French. They once had claims on the modern canton of Vaud in Switzerland, but their access to it was cut by Geneva during the Reformation, after which it was conquered by Bern. Though originally a poor duchy, later heirs to the throne were diplomatically skilled, and gained control over strategic mountain passes in the Alps. This caused the great powers such as France, England, and Spain to take the dukes' opinions into account. This image depicts a seal, an emblem, a coat of arms or a crest. ...
