Hybrid medal combining both spouses, with one side made by Guillaume Dupré and the other by his son Abraham.
Victor Amédée is the twelfth Duke of Savoy. He is the first to obtain the possibility of reclaiming the title of King of Cyprus held by his ancestors, thus making the House of Savoy royal. He lost his life in the unfortunate campaign he initiated in Milan.
Christine de France is the daughter of Henri IV and Marie de Médicis. She married Victor Amédée in 1619.
