Duke of Genoa (1884) Ferdinando (circa 1920)


Italian royalty, Prince of Savoy, 3rd Duke of Genoa, and an admiral in the Royal Italian Navy.

Ferdinando was the eldest son of Prince Tommaso of Savoy-Genoa, Duke of Genoa and his wife Princess Isabella of Bavaria (1863–1924). On 22 September 1904 he was given the title Prince of Udine.

Holding the rank of Captain he served in World War I commanding a Torpedo Boat Destroyer and was decorated with a medal of honour for personal bravery.

Prince Ferdinando succeeded to the title Duke of Genoa on 15 April 1931 following the death of his father.

Later on in his Naval career Prince Ferdinando would achieve the rank of admiral, and become commander of the upper Adriatic sea.

He married at Turin on 28 February 1938 Countess Maria Luigia (1899–1986) an Italian noblewoman. They had no children.

The reign of the House of Savoy in Italy came to end on 12 June 1946 after a referendum was held and the Italian people voted to abolish the monarchy.

He died on 24 June 1963, aged 79, in Bordighera. His brother Prince Filiberto succeeded to the title Duke of Genoa.
