Princess Maria Anna Victoria of Savoy (German: Maria Anna Victoria von Savoyen; 11 September 1683 – 11 October 1763) was the daughter of Prince Louis Thomas of Savoy, Count of Soissons, and Uranie de La Cropte de Beauvais.
She was the niece of Prince Eugene of Savoy, the great general and statesman of imperial Austria, and a patron of the arts. She was styled Mademoiselle de Soissons prior to her marriage. Upon Eugene's death in 1736, Maria Anna Victoria inherited his estate in Austria, which she then proceeded to quickly sell off at cut rate prices. His mansions, art collections, wartime medals, and the sword given to him by Anne, Queen of Great Britain, for his part in the War of the Spanish Succession were sold; nothing was spared.
