Amadeus VII (March 1360, Chambéry – 1 November 1391), known as the Red Count, was Count of Savoy from 1383 to 1391.

Amadeus was the son of Amadeus VI, Count of Savoy and Bonne of Bourbon. Amadeus VII was known for his hospitality, for he would entertain people of all stations and never turned a person from his table without a meal.

He married Bonne of Berry, daughter of John, Duke of Berry, who was the younger brother of Charles V of France. They had three children:

Upon his death at age 29 from tetanus, controversy arose because of his will. Amadeus VII left the important role of guardian of his son and heir, Amadeus VIII, to his own mother, a sister of the powerful Duke de Bourbon, instead of following the tradition of appointing the child's mother, who was a daughter of the equally powerful Duke de Berry. It took three months of negotiations to restore peace in the family.
