Yolande Palaiologina or Violant (Moncalvo, June 1318 – Chambery, December 24, 1342) was the daughter of Theodore I, Marquess of Montferrat and Argentina Spinola, a Genoese lady, daughter of Opicino Spinola. She received the name Yolande from her paternal grandmother Irene of Montferrat.

Life

Yolande married on May 1, 1330 to Aimone, Count of Savoy, from her marriage she became Countess consort of Savoy, Aosta and Moriana. Her marriage was arranged to seal the newly found peace between her family and the Counts of Savoy, and on the basis that the latter would succeed to Montferrato in case of extinction in the male line of the Palaeologus family.[1] They had five children:[2]

  1. Amadeus VI (Amadeo VI) (1334–1383)
  2. Bianca (1336–1388), married in 1350 to Galeazzo II Visconti, Lord of Milan.
  3. John (1338–1345), died young
  4. Catherine (1341), died young
  5. Louis (b. 24 December 1342), died young

According also to this act of inheritance in Montferatto, when the male line died out of the Palaeologus dynasty with the death of Bonifacio IV of Montferrat two centuries later, Charles III, Duke of Savoy laid claim to Montferrato through Yolande his great-great-great-great grandmother. However it was claimed by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor

Yolande herself died whilst giving birth to her son Louis on 24 December 1342, she was twenty-four years of age.

Her daughter Bianca was mother to Gian Galeazzo Visconti and Violante Visconti. Among Yolande's descendants are Louis XII of France, Henry II of France and Henrietta Maria, Queen of England.
