Bl. Margaret of Savoy Biography

Blessed Margaret of Savoy was also known as Margherita. She was born to the nobility, little girl of Amadeo of Savoy, Lord of Piedmont and main Prince of Achaea, and Catherine of Geneva.

Hitched to Theodore Paleologus, Marquis of Montferrat on January 17 1403. Bereft in 1418. Declined a marriage offer from Philip, Visconti of Milan.

Impacted by Saint Vincent Ferrer, she turned into a Dominican tertiary. In 1426 she established a house at Alba, Liguria and filled in as its Prioress.

In 1451, after 25 years, she got ecclesiastical endorsement for the assembly from Pope Eugene IV. She was liable to dreams and euphorias and was a rumoured supernatural occurrence labourer.

Her later years were spent under a haze of contention as her home dealt with bogus indictments of doctrinal abnormalities, and she charges of being excessively exacting with her nuns.
