About Salomon Henry d'Avigdor, Count

Birth name: Salomon Enrico Avigdor (also known as Enrico, Henri, Henry).

Really good reference databases (search <Avigdor>) http://storia.camera.it/ http://www.memoireetactualite.org/fr/presse.php http://trove.nla.gov.au/

A wonderful and complete blog. NB: There are a few inaccuracies, but these mainly relate to some of the sources. In the signed treaty from 2nd Febryary 1861 (transcribed by the French in 1994), the S. H. d'Avigdor refers to his full name Salomon Henry d'Avigdor. Nice was signed over to France around 1860/1861, during the pre-unification of Italy, and not long after he became Duke d'Avigdor d'Acquviva. Created Duke of Acquaviva by Napolean III. https://yveshivertmesseca.wordpress.com/2014/05/17/la-tres-mirifique-vie-de-samuel-henri-avigdor-bourgeois-gentilhomme-entrepreneur-et-diplomate/
