Victor Amadeus II, autocratic ruler of Savoy, was a notable figure in European history at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (he reigned 1675-1730). The bureaucratic and military machine he did much to create in the Savoyard domains made them a dynamic force among the other states of the Italian peninsula and launched them on a course that would lead them to becoming the nucleus of Italian unification in the nineteenth century. This is the first biography of Victor Amadeus II in a century.
