  • Notes 
    • "Roger of Lauria was an Italian admiral in Aragonese service, who was the commander of the fleet of the Crown of Aragon during the War of the Sicilian Vespers. He was probably the most successful and talented naval tactician of the medieval period. He is known as Ruggero or Ruggiero di Lauria in Italian and Roger de Ll├║ria in Catalan." [Wikipedia]

      His father was not Richardo de Lauria, justiciar of Naples; this has been shown by Peter Stewart to have been an invention. His mother was, however, named Bella d'Amico or de Amichi.
