30 March 1519 Charles I
On the death of Charles II of Savoy, the Duchy of Savoy passed to his grand uncle and heir-male Philip II of Savoy (brother of Amadeus IX of Savoy). Although Charles II's sister Yolande Louise of Savoy did not succeed in Savoy because of her gender, she was the heir general of his brother and as such she is regarded to have succeeded him in claims to Cyprus, Armenia and Jerusalem. The Dukes of Savoy continued to claims to Cyprus, Armenia and Jerusalem, however. Yolande Louise married Philibert II of Savoy (son and heir of Philip II). It was thought that their child would unite the two claims, but she died childless. Although her husband and the House of Savoy continued to use the royal titles, her heir however was her first cousin Charlotte of Naples, who was the only surviving child of the marriage of her aunt Anna of Savoy with Frederick IV of Naples
Line of Philip II of Savoy, since 1490[edit]
This line of succession followed the Salic succession of the House of Savoy.
