Enter the name for this tabbed section: Savoy

Savoy

Savoy is a region of western Europe that emerged, along with the free communes of Switzerland, following the collapse of the Frankish Kingdom of Burgundy. Installed by Rudolph III, King of Burgundy, officially in 1003, the House of Savoy maintained independence as counts and then dukes until Savoia was linked with the Kingdom of Sardinia, which included Piemonte in north-western Italy. Savoy was largely absorbed into France in 1860, as part of the political agreement with Napoleon III that brought about the unification of Italy.

About Me

My interest in antique maps was sparked by a map dealer named P. J. Radford who lived in Denmead near Portsmouth. He got me going and by 1961 I had started to buy and sell antique maps and prints. By the late 60's I had opened a shop in Watergate Street Chester. The shop closed in 1998 when the whole business was moved to the internet.

I am also the webmaster for my village -
