Early Origins of the Mastrapola family
Romans arrived, then the Saracens. Then the Norman Conquest said to be Sicily's brightest hour, 1057 A.D. and taking 35 years. They made Sicilians the leading Maritimes power in the Mediterranean, and King Roger of Sicily one of the greatest Kings in Europe. From Sicily they invaded Greece. 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, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry. The Mastropaolo family were first derived from Maestro Paolo, the celebrated physician at the time of Emperor Frederico II in the mid 13th century. Paolo held vast domains in Sicily. They held a family seat at Agrigeno Licata.
