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.
