Comital titleEdit

The Bergolo estates were part of the minor aristocracy in the Italian nobility of relatively recent heritage (the comital title Count Calvi of Bergolo having been created in 1787). Members of the Calvi di Bergolo line include General Giorgio Carlo Calvi di Bèrgolo (1887–1977),[4] consort of Princess Yolanda of Savoy, sister of Umberto II, the last king of Italy; Princess Mafalda of Savoy, wife of the Prince of Hesse, who died at Buchenwald concentration camp in 1944; and the painter Gregorio Calvi di Bergolo (1904–1994), who created the Hall of Murals in Chicago's International Surgical Museum.[5]
