Prince Amedeo o Savoy, Duke o Aosta (Amedeo Umberto Costantino Giorgio Paolo Elena Maria Fiorenzo Zvonimir; born 27 September 1943) is a claimant tae the headship o the Hoose o Savoy, the faimily which ruled Italy frae 1861 tae 1946. Until 7 Julie 2006, Amedeo wis styled Duke o Aosta; on that date he declared himsel Duke o Savoy, a teetle that is disputed atween him an his third cousin, Vittorio Emanuele, Prince o Naples. In the event that Vittorio Emanuele and his son will fail tae produce any legitimate male heirs, their claim tae the Italian throne will pass on tae Amedeo an his male-line descendants.
