In this publication of 1912, respected medievalist Previté-Orton presents a detailed history of two centuries of the House of Savoy in a broadly chronological fashion, taking his cue from the contemporary histories of the Holy Roman Emperors. The richly footnoted account examining the rise of the House of Savoy from the time of Humbert Whitehands to the death of Count Thomas in 1233 is aided by the inclusion of genealogies, an appendix containing the original Latin texts of many relevant documents, and two maps showing Savoyard lands in circa 1080 and 1180. Previté-Orton's book will be of interest to students of this relatively neglected period of Savoyard history and to anyone with a more general interest in European medieval history.
