Victor Amadeus III

Victor Amadeus III, 1726–96, king of Sardinia (1773–96), son and successor of Charles Emmanuel III. He declared war on France in 1792 after French Revolutionary troops had occupied Savoy and Nice. With Austrian help he defended Piedmont until 1796, when Bonaparte (see Napoleon I) forced him to conclude the armistice of Cherasco. His son, Charles Emmanuel IV, succeeded him (see Savoy, house of).
