Finale Ligure, Province of Savona, Liguria, Italy
In 967 Holy Roman Emperor Otho I established the Aleramic Marquisate, granting the territory to his daughter and her descendants.
In 1091 the fiefdom passed to marquis Del Carretto, whose family became one of the most powerful in the Liguria region, often in competition in the following centuries with the Genoa Republic, until finally a war broke out in 1447, when Finalborgo was set on fire and the Del Carretto defeated, though later emperors Maximilian I and Charles V reconfirmed the fiefdom to the family.
In 1558 the bad government of Alfonso II Del Carretto led to the occupation by the Milan governor. In 1602 Finale passed under the Spaniards, who sold it to Genoa in 1713, Finally in 1815 it was granted by the Congress of Vienna to the Kingdom of Sardinia.
