From the ancient and picturesque Italian region of Venice emerged a variety of distinguished names, including the notable surname Barbarulli. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves as populations grew and travel became more frequent. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they are characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most traditional type of family name found in the region of Venice is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, local surnames are also found. Local names, which are the least frequent of the major types of surnames found in Italy, are derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land. Often Italian local surnames bore the prefix "di," which signifies emigration from one place to another, but does not necessarily denote nobility. The Barbarulli family lived in the Veneto region of Italy.

Later formally crowned King of Burgundy in 1178, given the name Barbarossa "Red Beard" in Italian by the northern italian cities. In Germany he was known as Kaiser Rotbart which means "Emperor Redbeard". He was the son of Duke Frederick II of the Hohenstaufen dynasty and Judith, daughter of Henry IX, Duke of Bavaria, from the rival House of Welf. On 10 June 1190, he drowned near Silifke Castle in the Saleph River.
