Jacques de Savoie-Nemours, duke of Genevois (1531-1585), was head of the legitimate cadet branch of the house of Savoy and cousin of Duke Emanuel Filibert of Savoy. The relationship between these cousins was at the same time a source of prestige for Jacques as an independent political actor, and a constant limitation on his ability to maneuver freely. One of the most illustrious courtiers and military leaders of the Renaissance, Jacques was also holder of the apanage of the Genevois, which functioned both as a symbol of his dynastic power, and as a resource for his international military, political, and cultural activities, especially at the French court. This work explains the reasons for his success within a European political environment in which dynasties and their various branches, not isolated individuals, were the key actors operating alongside and through a range of other political formations, of which the ‘state’ was but one among many.
