A Jacobite Gazetteer - Turin


The city of Turin is located in north-western Italy, 120 kilometres west of the city of Milan.

King James III and VIII visited the city in 1717. On February 24 he was received by King Victor Amadeus of Sicily and his wife Queen Anne Marie, granddaughter of King Charles I and James' heir presumptive. James then spent the night at the Castello di Moncalieri.

For the next ninety years members of the House of Savoy were the immediate heirs presumptive to the throne after James and his sons Charles and Henry. There are numerous memorials to members of the House of Savoy in Turin. King Charles IV (King Charles Emanuel IV of Sardinia) and his brother King Victor (King Victor Emanuel I of Sardinia) were born here, and King Victor and his wife, Queen Maria Teresa, are buried here. There are also several items connected with members of the House of Stuart which can be seen in the city's many museums.

Basilica di Superga

Chiesa di Gran Madre di Dio
