ABOUT THE ROYAL HOUSE OF SAVOY
The Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy are among the oldest orders of chivalry and merit in the world. The Orders of Savoy have their headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland and have 35 delegations around the world that support the Orders’ ongoing charitable works. Their origins and their principles, traditions and humanitarian objectives go back a thousand years. HRH the Prince Victor Emmanuel of Savoy, Prince of Naples and duke of Savoy, is Head of the House of Savoy and Grand Master of the Orders of Savoy. Prince Emmanuel Philibert is his son and the hereditary crown prince of Italy and is currently president of the Council of the Orders of Savoy.

In 1946, when the Kingdom of Italy ended, the House of Savoy was the Europe oldest ruling dynasty. The heads of the House of Savoy had ruled, first as counts, then as dukes, and finally as kings, for almost a thousand years. Descended in the direct male line of a vassal of the Holy Roman Empire in the 10th century, the Savoys ruled Savoy, where they established their capital at Chambery. Their rule was eventually extended to include Piedmont, Aosta and other territories in what is now Italy, France and Swiss. In the 18th century, the Savoys were kings of Sardiniaand it was under the aegis of the House of Savoy that the Italian States were united in 1871.

The legacy of the royal family can be seen in the castles and palaces, and in the beauty of the northwestern Italian city of Torino, magnificent capital of Savoy in the heart of Piedmont from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The dynastic chivalric traditions of the Royal House of Savoy continue. The Order of the Annunciation and the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus, two of the oldest chivalric institutions in the world, are still alive today, embodying the medieval spirit of the dynasty while supporting very modern charities in Italy, Swiss, France, Japan, the Americas and elsewhere. Chivalry lives. Today, the House of Savoy remains one of the oldest royal dynasties.
