The last time a French army marched into Spain was under Napoleon and it was to boot out the Bourbons.This time the Bourbon Kings were restoring Royalist power.

May 30 1845- the birth of Amadeo I of Spain.

He was born Prince Amadeo of Savoy in Turin. He was the son of Victor Emmanuel II of Italy and his wife Adelaide. His mother was born Archduchess Adelaide of Austria, a daughter of Archduke Rainier of Austria. Her father was a son of Leopold II, Holy Roman emperor. His parents had 8 children together. He was their third child and second son. His father later had 2 children from a morganatic marriage.

His full siblings:
-Marie Clotilde- married Prince Napoleon Bonaparte, a son of Joseph Bonapart. Was the mother of three children.
-Umberto- became Umberto I of Italy. His wife Margherita was a daughter of Ferdinand, Duke of Genoa. Parents of Victor Emmanuel III.
-Prince Oddone, Duke of Montferrat: died at the age of 19. He suffered major health issues during his short life.
-Maria Pia: married Luis I of Portugal. Had two sons.
-Carlo Alberto: died as a child
-Vittorio Emmanuel: died the day he was born
-a second Vittorio Emmanuel: died at nearly four months old

He was titled Duke of Aosta from birth. He fought during the third world of Italian Independence and made the rank of major general. After his marriage he was also made a vice-admiral in the royal navy. He gave up the position when he came to the Spanish throne.

After Isabella II was deposed from the throne, Spain decided to install a new monarchy. Amadeo who was a descendent of Philip II through his daughter Infanta Catalina, was chosen to head the new dynasty. On November 16, 1870 he was elected king, and swore his oath January 2. Unfortunately the general who had been his biggest supporter at the time was assassinated which would lead to a rough reign for him.

Uprisings began in major cities, and in the Catalan and Basque regions. The artillery corps went on strike. the king was advised of the danger to his life but he ignored and an attempt was made on his life. His carriage that he and his wife were riding in was attacked and shot up. The horses and carriage were hit but none of the passengers were harmed.

Feb 11, 1873 Amadeo abdicated the throne and Spain became a republic. He made an appearance in the courts declaring Spain ungovernable. He reign lasted just over 2 years. The republic would end in 1874 with the ascension of Alfonso XII, the son of Isabella II.

Disgusted with Spain he returned home to Italy and resumed his role as Duke of Aosta. He spent the remainder of his life in Turin. He died January 18, 1890. Puccini's famous elegy Crisantemi was composed in his honor as they were friends.

Amadeo was married twice.


His first wife and short lived queen consort was Maria Vittoria dal Pozzo. She was the daughter of Carlo Emmanuele dal Pozzo, 5th Prince of Cisterna. His father originally opposed the match wishing a German marriage instead. For all of her father's princely title the family wasn't royal, simply Piedmont nobility. But Maria Vittoria was the sole heir to her father's extensive fortune and the king was convinced to allow them to marry. They married May 30 1867. The wedding was marred by the death of the station master who fell under their honeymoon train. She would die in 1876.

She gave her husband three children:
-Emanuele Filiberto- succeeded his father as 2nd Duke of Aosta. Married to Princess Helene of Orleans. They had 2 sons.
-Prince Vittorio Emanuele, Count of Turin: he died unmarried
-Prince Luigi Amedeo, Duke of the Abruzzi: never married. Had a relationship with a Somali woman named Faduma Ali.


After the death of his first wife Amadeo married his niece Maria Letizia Bonaparte. She was the daughter of his eldest sister Maria Clotilde and her husband Napoloeon Joseph Bonaparte. She bore him one son.

-Prince Umberto, Count of Salemi: he died of the Spanish flu during WWI.

Technically could have been in the Italian thread as well, but since Amadeo served for a time as King of Spain I put him here.
