Apart from the question who is the head of the family, both cousins Vittorio Emanuele and Amedeo of course are Savoias, they are both direct and legitimate male agnates of a long line of Dukes of Savoy.

It is not that a surname is usurped like Bernadotte or Nassau, both princes simply ARE Savoys.

The trial was certainly not about dynastic rights but about the surname Di Savoia.

There are no dynastic rights in the Italian Republic, so an Italian court wouldn't be qualified to rule on that matter, would it ? My post was a reply tp LadyRohan's statement that, "with a living Crown Prince and heir", the family branches and headship of the royal house "are what they are".

Obviously Italian courts can't decide on dynastic right of a Throne that dies not exist at the moment
After King Umberto II dynastic right had only Prince Amedeo and his male descendants.

In essence there is no kingdom of Italy, no Italian crown and no Italian succession. What Vittorio Emanuele and Amedeo are: dynasts of one of Europe's eldest and most illustrious royal dynasties.

Whether or not King Umberto II was not supportive of his son's marriage to Marina Doria, in the end he did not exclude his son by formal decision. To keep the unity it is best to let time do healing work: the simple fact that Prince Emanuele Filiberto has no son automatically ends the "dispute" between the Duke of Savoy and the Duke of Aosta.

Their respective sons, Emanuele Filiberto and Aimone, seem to have a normal relationship. Very much mirroring the relationship of Jean d'Orléans with his Spanish cousin Luis-Alfonso.

Of course the dispute will explode again when Emanuele Filiberto acts alike the late King of Michael: "Dynastic statute? My *ss! I want my daughter to become the next Head!" Then Aimone or Umberto will claim to be the 28th (!) consecutive Savoia being the Duke of Savoy.

HRH Prince Aimone has no dialogue at all with his distant cousin Emanuele-Filiberto.

Creative use of the word ‘distant’ to again campaign an agenda, Cory. Could you for once prove these allegations of ‘no dialogue at all’, or simply desist?

Please, stay on topic.
This is NOT the proper thread for discussions about the succession to the Headship of the House of Savoy and neither about the relationships between other members of the family.
Thanks for understanding and cooperation.

Both Vittorio Emanuele (the Duke of Savoy) and Amedeo (the Duke of Aosta) are in frail state, sad to say.
