King of Spain. Belonging to the Savoy dynasty, the male second child of Vittorio Emanuele II, he became sovereign of Spain thanks to a series of events such as the abolition of the Salic law in the absence of the heirs of Ferdinand III, a revolution that deposed his daughter Isabella (1869), and finally an intense diplomatic activity of the king of Italy who decreed his election (1870) in the Parliament (Les Cortes). However a political instability, the hostility of the pro-Bourbon and the Spanish Church forced him to an inevitable abdication (1873). Returning to Turin, where he assumed the title of Duke of Aosta, retired to private life although with representative positions for the Italian monarchy. Amedeo I died at the age of forty-five due to pneumonia.
