About Tommaso I, IV marchese di Saluzzo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_I_of_Saluzzo -------------------- Thomas I (died 1296) was the fourth margrave of Saluzzo from 1244 to his death. He succeeded his father Manfred III.

Under the reign of Thomas, Saluzzo blossomed, achieving a greatness which had eluded his ancestors. He crafted a state whose borders remained unchanged for over two centuries. He extended the march to include Carmagnola. He was often at odds with Asti and he was a prime enemy of the Charles of Anjou and his Italian pretensions. During his tenure, he made Saluzzo a free city, giving it a podestà to govern in his name. He defended his castles and roccaforti (strongholds) vigorously and built many new ones in the cities. He was succeeded by his son Manfred. -------------------- Fourth margrave of Saluzzo Made Saluzzo a free city Extended borders of state - to where it remained for two centuries -------------------- Thomas I (died 1296) was the fourth margrave of Saluzzo from 1244 to his death.
