The Savoy family (Casa Savoia) is a royal reign that was well-known in 1003 in the historical Savoy region. It includes the area of the Western Alps between Lake Geneva in the north and Dauphiné in the south. The history here goes back to 1091 when it was approved by the Count of the Genevois to the great Benedictine house of St. Michel de la Cluse, near Turin, which by the early 13th century had established a priory there.
