The Māntova surname is a habitational name taken on from the name of the city of Mantua.

Māntova Early Origins



The surname Māntova was first found in Modena (Etruscan: Mutna; Latin: Mutina; Modenese: Mōdna), a city in Emilia capital of the province of Modena. It became Roman in 215 B. C. It was successfully defended by Brutus against Mark Anthony. It changed hands many times between Church and Duchy. In 1859 the inhabitants declared in favor of unity with the Kingdom of Italy. The Ducal Palace is a notable. Rich in art the city has many museums and galleries. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time was in itself a family honor.
