Princess Yolanda Margherita Milena Elisabetta Romana Maria of Savoy ( _it. Principessa Iolanda Margherita Milena Elisabetta Romana Maria di Savoia) (June 1 1901 - October 16 1986) was the eldest daughter of King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy and his wife Princess Elena of Montenegro, and the sister of the last king of Italy Umberto II.

Yolanda was born in Rome. As a young woman she was a great sportswoman, particularly interested in swimming and riding.

On April 9 1923 in the Quirinal Palace in Rome she married Giorgio Calvi, Count of Bergolo (March 15 1887 - February 25 1977). They had five children:
* Maria Ludovica Calvi di Bergolo (born January 24 1924); married Robert Gasche
* Giorgio Calvi di Bergolo (born and died 1925)
* Vittoria Calvi di Bergolo (June 22 1927 - March 1985); married Guglielmo Count Guarienti di Brenzone
* Guia-Anna Calvi di Bergolo (born March 8 1930); married Carlo Guarienti
* Pier Francesco Calvi, Count of Bergolo (born December 22 1933); married Marisa Allasio

After her marriage Yolanda lived in the town of Pinerolo, southwest of Turin.

In 1946 Yolanda and her family went into voluntary exile with her father in Alexandria, Egypt. After King Victor Emmanuel's death Yolanda and her family returned to Italy where they lived at Castelporziano.

Yolanda died in a hospital in Rome and is buried in Turin.
