Moretta Early Origins



The surname Moretta was first found in Trieste, and ancient Roman colony that later fell under King Leopold III of Habsbourg, Duke of Austria in 1382. 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.
