  • Notes 
    • Called "the Accursed" (Maledictus). Count of the palace of Salerno in 980, and acting regent for Prince Pandulf II.

      "According to a legend related by Saint Peter Damian (1007-1072), there was an eruption of Mount Vesuvius and Gianni exclaimed that surely it was an omen foretelling the death of some rich man, who would surely end up in hell. The next day, Gianni was found dead in the arms of a prostitute. This could be the basis for his epithet 'the Accursed'." [Wikipedia]
