Area of France between the Alps, Lake Geneva, and the river Rhône. A medieval duchy, it was made into the départements of Savoie and Haute-Savoie, in the Rhône-Alpes region.
Savoy was a duchy from the 14th century, with the capital Chambéry. In 1720 it became a province of the kingdom of Sardinia which, with Nice, was ceded to France in 1860 by Victor Emmanuel II (king of Italy from 1861) in return for French assistance in driving the Austrians from Italy.
