Abstract:

"Charles Emanuel, surnamed the Great, duke of Savoy, married Catherine of Austria, daughter of Philip the Second of Spain, by whom he had several children, among whom were four sons: Philip Emanuel, who died an infant; Victor Amedæus, his successor; Emanuel Philibert, viceroy of Naples; Maurice, who was first a cardinal but renounced the ecclesiastical condition to marry his niece, of whom he became enamoured; and Thomas Francis, founder of the branch of Carignan. The latter went to France, where he married Mary de Bourbon, daughter of Charles, count of Soissons, who was killed at the battle of Sedan, in 1641. This lady, who was of the blood royal of France, brought him the county of Soissons, which title he assumed. By this union he had three sons, Philibert Emanuel, prince of Carignan: Joseph Emanuel, count of Soissons; and Eugene Maurice, who, on the death of the preceding, assumed his title, and having married Olympia Mancini, one of the nieces of the celebrated Cardinal Mazarine, had by her three daughters and four sons, the youngest of whom, Francis Eugene, was born October the 18th, 1663"--Introduction.

"It is scarcely requisite to preface the self-written memoirs of a man of the high character and consequence of the celebrated prince Eugene of Savoy, with any remarks upon the interest which must almost necessarily attach to them. Such a work from the hand of a man whose history is for a long period interwoven with that of Europe at large, must be curious, however executed; but the memoirs of Eugene are as attractive from the spirit in which they are written, as from the importance of the person and the events to which they relate"--Preface.
