About Manfredo di Saluzzo

Manfred I (died 1175) was the first margrave of Saluzzo in the last year of his life alone, being an old man when the Emperor Frederick I appointed him margrave. He was the eldest son of Boniface del Vasto, the margrave of Western Liguria, of a noble stock which had ruled the region between Savona and Ventimiglia for generations. Boniface received the county of Saluzzo in feudum directly from its suzerain, Ulric Manfred, margrave of Turin, and gave it to his son. The county comprised the land between the Alps, the Po River, and the Stura. Manfred transmitted the margravate to his son by Eleanor, Manfred II, and the dynasty which reigned until the Renaissance was born. -------------------- Manfred I (died 1175) was the first margrave of Saluzzo in the last year of his life alone, being an old man when the Emperor Frederick I appointed him margrave.
