Eugenio of Savoy-Genoa[1][2] (Eugenio Alfonso Carlo Maria Giuseppe; 13 March 1906 – 8 December 1996) was a Prince of Savoy-Genoa, Duke of Ancona from birth, and fifth and final Duke of Genoa. Eugenio was the sixth and youngest child of Prince Thomas of Savoy, 2nd Duke of Genoa and his wife Princess Isabella of Bavaria.[1][2]

Marriage and issue[edit]

Eugenio married Princess Lucia of the Two Sicilies, fifth child and fourth-eldest daughter of Prince Ferdinand Pius of the Two Sicilies, Duke of Calabria and his wife Princess Maria Ludwiga Theresia of Bavaria, on 29 October 1938 at Nymphenburg Palace in Munich, Germany.[1][2] Eugenio and Lucia had one daughter:[1][2]

After the dissolution of the Kingdom of Italy in 1946, Eugenio and his family relocated to Brazil where the Duke ran a farm. Upon his death on 8 December 1996, the male line of the Genoa branch of the House of Savoy became extinct as did the Royal Dukedom of Genoa. In 2006, the ashes of the Duke and Duchess of Genoa were transferred to the Royal Crypt of Superga near Turin.
