      He was the third Marquess of Saluzzo, from 1215 to his death. He was the son of Boniface of Saluzzo and Maria di Torres of Sassari (in Sardinia). Since his father died in 1212, he succeeded his grandfather Manfred II as marquess on the latter's death in 1215. His paternal grandmother Azala´s or Adelasia of Montferrat was regent during his minority until 1218. During that period, his grandmother paid tribute to Count Thomas I of Savoy.

      Manfred fought the expansionistic policies of Thomas, as had his father, and he defended the borders of his territory with care. He died in 1244 and was succeeded by his son Thomas.

      He married in March 1233 to Beatrice, daughter of Amadeus IV, Count of Savoy. At his death, she was pregnant with twins. The couple had the following children:

      1. Alice (c. 1236-before 12 Jul 1311); married Edmund de Lacy, Baron of Pontefract and had children.

      2. Thomas I, Marquess of Saluzzo (1239-1296); succeeded Manfred as Marquess of Saluzzo.

      3. Agnes (1245 ? after 4 August 1265); born after his death, married John, son of Eustace de Vesci, no children.

      4. Margaret (born 1245); born after his death, twin of Agnes.
