About Manfredo II di Saluzzo (Lancia)

2nd Margrave of Saluzzo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manfred_II_of_Saluzzo

-------------------- Manfred II of Saluzzo

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Manfred II (1140 – 1215) was the second margrave of Saluzzo from his father's death in 1175 to his own. He was the son of Manfred I and Eleanor. He placed the capital of the margravate definitively in Saluzzo.

He married Azalaïs of Montferrat before 1182, forming an alliance with one of the most powerful dynasties in northern Italy. He had at least five children with her:

Agnes, married Comita III of Torres

Boniface (the heir, who predeceased his father), married Maria, daughter of aforementioned Comita

Margaret, married Geoffrey de Salvaing

(unnamed daughter), married Marquis William II of Ceva

Thomas

He also fathered an illegitimate son, Bastardino.

He expanded the march and fought against the expansionism of the neighbouring counts of Savoy. After several minor skirmishes, the two principalities came to terms in 1213 and peace was established for the final two years of his life. Since his eldest son Boniface had predeceased him in 1212, he was succeeded by his grandson, Manfred III, under the regency of Azalaïs. She had to pay tribute on behalf of young Manfred, and for the next century, Saluzzo was a vassal of Savoy. -------------------- Manfred II (1140 – 1215) was the second margrave of Saluzzo from his father's death in 1175 to his own.
