Olivier Renault Ashford de Savoie (1793 - Present) was the single legitimate son of Griffith Ashford de Savoie and his wife Maria Luisa Ashford de Bar and thus the nominal patriarch of the House of Savoie. He was a military leader post-adolescence who would come to reform Savoy as an independent Principality many centuries after its original dissolution.

Early Years; Luciensburg

Born a commoner within the Holy Orenian Empire, he would join the Sedan Rebellion in his adolescence in an attempt to re-establish the identity of the bygone houses of Oren, though fleeing Oren with the newly established Metinan Mercenary Company after the Rebellion proved unsuccessful. From the ashes of their failure, the Metinan Company established the City-State of Luciensburg as a place for disgruntled Human refugees with Olivier joining the municipal government of Luciensburg upon being anointed one of the three Consuls in service to its people and headed by the Interrex Bernard de Salier.

As Consul, Olivier was considered a controversial head in the Tenth Nordling War where he accepted a contract from the Empire of Oren to fight against the Kingdom of Norland. He is credited with deliberating on the contract with imperial leadership and then committing Luciensberg to the war. After an assassination attempt in the later days of the war, the man substituted his dismembered hand with a pure gold metal fist. It was believed at the time that the assassination attempt was the result of Olivier wishing to become the king of Luciensberg or as a consequence of anti-imperial sentiment within the city of Luciensberg.

Prince of Savoy

Rise to Duke of Corazon

After the assassination attempt and his move from Luciensberg, Olivier and his wife Adeline de Savoie settled down in Oren and then swore allegiance to Emperor John VIII and becoming apart of the Augustine Court. After idle time in the Empire, Olivier became disenfranchised with perpetual peace as a man of battle and brawn, thus becoming spirited at the news of a revolt against Queen Johanna of Sutica, who he sought out with some immediacy to offer his tactical skill against the insurgents. He was bestowed land under Johanna's kingdom in exchange for his promise of aid, which then befell under a title which he came to inherit from his friend, James Alstion, the last heir of House Alstion, as the Duchy of Corazon. As Duke, he was installed as a powerful member of Johanna's council and would remain in the position until her death.

Dissolution of Sutica

Shortly following the end of the rebellion, Queen Johanna was taken by illness and died, leaving Sutica in the hands of Olivier as Lord Regent to her son, Corwin Alexander. The regent quickly took hold, transforming Sutica into a modern Savoy, and cementing himself as Prince of Savoy in 1836 via the proclamation of the dissolution of Sutica [1].
