  • Notes 
    • "He and his brother Angerio came to Italy with Robert Guiscard in the late 1040s. [...] When Guiscard conquered Salerno he rewarded Turgisio with the castle of Rota which had belonged to the Lombard princes of Salerno. Turgisio expanded his land holdings by usurping those of Gisulfo II, the last Lombard prince of Salerno, as well as churches and abbeys, for which he was excommunicated several times. In 1061 Turgisio was invested by Guiscard with the county of Rota. In 1077 he was confirmed as count of Rota and invested as lord of San Severino. He and his successors took the family name of Sanseverino from the name of the castle in which he settled." [Leo van de Pas]
