Thomas I (Savoy)
He joined the imperial-friendly party in Italy ( Ghibellines ), whereupon Philip of Swabia gave him the Piedmontese fiefs of Chieri and Testona and the Vaudois fiefdom of Moudon . Frederick II appointed him imperial vicar in Lombardy in Italy in 1226 . At the end of his life, Thomas of Savoy preferred the general title Count of Savoy , after he had previously called himself Count von Maurienne .
