I hope you forgive me for asking this somewhat unrelated question, but some of you might be able to help out since its regarding the Royal House of Italy.

Amadeus I was briefly king of Spain (187073) and belonged to the House of Savoy. He went into exile in Italy and died there, as far as I know.

Now, my question is: Did Amadeus have any sons or daughters? And who would have been his heir?

Regards!

Amedeo di Savoia was the second son of Vittorio Emanuele II, king of Italy. The father created for him the dignity of Duke of Aosta.
He married twice (sorry I don't remember names of wives) and had IIRC four males.
The first, Emanuele Filiberto, hereditated the title of Duke of Aosta and commanded Italian III Army in WWI.
After him, were Dukes of Aosta:
Amedeo (died 1942) the last Governor of Italian East Africa
Aimone (died 1948) the creator of italian special forces
Amedeo (living) the actual Duke

Other sons of Amedeo (I) were:
Luigi Filippo, Duke of Abruzzi, the known explorer of frst years of XX Century
Vittorio Emanuele, Count of Torino
I don't remember the name of fourth but he was the only member of Savoia family to die in WWI
