Savoy exists on territory required by France for conquest in the short and long campaigns of the Grand Campaign. Its AI generally declares war on whoever owns France or territories in the Italian peninsula.

Unit RosterEdit

Savoy's unit roster is largely generic, with the exception of the fact that it can train Heavy Cavalry.


The Duchy of Savoy was a country in northern Italy and a regional power during the 18th century, mainly siding with Austria and opposing France and Spain (as it is represented in-game). In 1713, it obtained the island of Sicily from Spain; in 1720, it had to trade the island to Austria in exchange of Sardinia. It thus became a kingdom and it is generally referred to, in this period, as Piedmont-Sardinia. After the Napoleonic Wars, Piedmont and its ruling House of Savoy would eventually conquer and annex all the other Italian states in 1860, unificating Italy in the process.
