are told by V. Spreti, in his “Enciclopedia Storico Nobiliare Italiana”
(1981 edition), Vol V, page 833 and by G.B Crollolanza, in his “
Dizionario Storico Balsonico” (1977 edition), Vol, that the Vassallo
of Sicily (which
also calls itself Vassallo-Paleologo) claim to be descended from the
VIII Paleologus of the Byzantine Empire.
claim is that, the family Palaeologus , settled in Sicily on two
first settlement of the Imperial Palaeologus in Sicily had taken place
in 1332, when one Giacomo Palaeologus, had settled in the city of Noto,
Sicily, changing his name to Vassallo, on settling in Sicily. It is also
claimed that this branch became extinct in the 15th Century.
second settlement in Sicily took place in 1429, when one Niccolo
Palaeologus, was ordered by his kinsmen, Constantine (The future
Emperor), the Despot of Morea, to go to Siciliy, and assume the name of
Vassallo, which he did, and we are also told there is a diplomia of King
Alfonso V of Aragon-Naples-Sicily-Malta, stating this, which is
registered in the Royal Sicilian Chancery dated 1439, Fol.455. We are
also told that Vassallo of Sicily are descendants of this Niccolo
Vassallo, the so-called Palaeologus.
historians mentioned above, mentioned that Muscia in his “Sicilia
Nobile”, on page 8, that one Giacomo Vassallo, was the father of one
Vassallo de Vassallo, which gentlemen was the Barone di Bavuso, in
Sicily, in 1296, thus the year earlier than the supposed settlement of
the Palaeologus family in Sicily. However, these historians do not
trouble themselves to explain the contradiction. Also , they never
mention that one Roberto de Vassallo, had long been settled in Sicily,
who had years before been made a Judge in Cefalu in Sicily, and was
still living on 19 April 1284, when he received a letter from the
Secreto of Sicily, in which he addressed him as ‘Giudice’.
it was true that the first Vassallo, to settle in Sicily was Giacomo
Palaeologus, who changed his name to Vassallo in 1332, how is it that we
have Roberto, Giacomo and Vassallo de Vassallo living , years before the
year 1332 ?
Spreti, and G.B Crollolanza, and many others, only record the claim put
forward by the Vassallo of Sicily in the 13th Century, and
also claim that the family only came to Sicily in 1332 and in 1429.
who settled in Sicily, was not a Palaeologo, but a scion of the Counts
of Vercelli, of the House of the MANFREDINGI. Muscia is wrong in making
Baron Vassallo of Bavuso a son of Giacomo, he was the son of Judge
Roberto (Bartolomeo) and thus Giacomo’s grandson, not his son.
the Genealogical data of the Vassallo family-further down below)
From the Genealogical tables kindly provided by the Director of the ‘Archivio di Stao di Vercelli’, from the Microfilm of the work of T.Arborio Mella, “Genealogie di Antiche Famiglie Vercellesi, Biellesi e di Piemontesi”, togther with proofs of Nobility of Fra. Carlo Guiseppe Bernezzo-Vassallo, A.O.M.4030, (1708); and the work of Professor Ferdinand Gabotto., and others, such as Vittorio Spreti, G.Crollolanza, Muscia, and other Italian works, we are now able to contruct the early pedigree of the Family name Vassallo, ca 1127-1130, at Vercelli, to Sicily and Malta.
four hundred years after the Vassallo family settled in the village of
Mosta in 1525, when Bartolomeo Vassallo, married the Noble Joanne Cumbo,
and went to live in the village of Mosta on the properties he received
as dowry from her father, the noble Andrea Cumbo, the Lord of the
Fortified ‘Tower Cumbo”, a weathly noblemen related to the Catalan
Noble family, who became Barons di Buonalbergo.
of the branches of the Manfredingi did not adopt family names until
1127, and some of them like the branch which adopted the family name ‘RADICATI’,
did so from one of its Lordships, they did this in 1178.
branch, which adopted as their family ‘GUASCO’ did so about 1120,
when Count Scipione’ detto Guasco’ (from his nicknae ‘Guasco’)
Family name of VASSALLO came into being in the same manner. Auberto 1
‘detto Vassallo’, ie: Auberto the Vassal, the first signor of Lavino,
Riseria, and Cassina della Valo, on the outskirts of Vercelli, adopted
his family name of Vassallo from his nickname of ‘The Vassal’, he
had been nicknamed possibly from his status as a vassal lord of his
elder brother Bongiovanni
II , and also of the Count-Bishop Ardizzone of Vercelli, when in 1127,
his brother Bongiovanni II, exchanged the rule of Count, by the
agreement he made with Bishop Ardizzone, and was made the Advocate of
the Church of Vercelli and adopted as the family name of AVOGADRO in
ancestry of the Counts of Vercelli go back to the dark ages of the Dukes
of Bavaria, and the Kings of Alamanni in the 4th and 5th
centuries. Almost from the beginning of history as settlers in
Vindilicia, we find the Bavarians under the leadership of the Ducal
house of the Agilofings who were of Franco-Salian origin.
the Bavarians themselves
appear to have been a Suevic tribe who had wandered into the old Roman
province then lying desolate and unoccupied as a sort of no-man’s
land, and , they settled there on or about 420.AD.
the beginning of their Danubian settlement they seem to have been
subject to the Merovingian Kings, who were the kinsmen of the
Agilolfings. It had been a peaceful arrangement
as they did not have to pay tribute.
their dukes were called Agilofings, the Aponym of their House, had to be
called Agilulf. However,
he has been lost to History, and we not in a position
to know as to when he lived. We therefore , shall start the pedigree of
the Vassallo family with:-
Velphio: King of the Alamanni, born ca: 385, not
sure of the date of death. The Alamanni were the fiercest of all the
western German tribles. It is stated that the Alamanni were offshoots of
the Swabian, Branch of the west Germans, from which they were
1: King of the Bavarians (
- 508). Born ca: 415 and died in 508. He was elected King of the
Bavarians, but at a later date, he renounced the title of King and
renounced the title of King and called himself ‘Duke’ of the
Bavarians. On his death, he was succeeded by his son.
I: duke of the Bavarians (r08-12). He was
also called Gihuld, married Regnaburga, from whose name we have the city
of Ratisbona, in Alamannia, Swabia. She is also called Reginpirga. They
had two sons Uto ‘The warrior’ and Teodo II, who succeeded to
II: Duke of Bavaria (512-37). He was born in
ca: 465, and died 537. married to Lucile the daughter of Aubert, the
first Lord of Alsace, and by his wife they had three sons, Teodo, Otto
and Teodovald. On his death, the tow elder sons, divided Bavaria between
them, and both took the title of Duke.One the death of Otto in 545, his
Brother Teodovald succeeded as the Duke of Upper Bavaria. From him is
descended the noble House of Vassallo.
III: Duke of Lower Bavaria (r 537-65). Born
ca:515, and died 584., he had succeeded to lower Bavaria on the death of
father, while his second brother Ottone took Upper Bavaria. Married and
was succeeded by his son Teodobert I.
I: Duke of Lower Bavaria (565-84). He died
in his seventies and was succeeded by his son Garibald.
I: duke of Lower Bavaria (584-92). Born ca:
540, and died 592. married to the Princess Waldrade of Waccho I , king
of Lombardy (ca:510-540)
was married twice before, her first husband was King Theudebald I, of
Austrasia, and King Clothair I of all Frank, who devorced her soon after
their marriage, when she married Gariblad, as her third husband, by whom
she had her only children.
are told by ‘Paulus the deacon’, the historian of the Lombardians,
who was born in 725, tht Waldrade was ‘uni ex suis qui dicebatur
Garibald’, which goes to descibe Garibald I , as being the kinsmen of
her two previous husbands. Also the Merovingian Kings Clothair II, and
Clovis II, were being described Queen Gundeberga, Garibald’s
granddaughter as being their Kinswomen. They had a son, Gundwald and two
daughters. Teudelinda, married King Authari of the Lombards and on his
death in 591, married his successor King Agilulf (591-616), the other
daughter married Euin, Duke of Trient.
I: Duke of Lower Bavaria (592)
after succeeding as the Duke of Lower Bavaria, his cousin Tassilo I,
duke of Upper Bavaria, attacked him and forced Gundwald to flee to
Italy. He went to his sister Teudelinda, who was Queen of King Aripert,
was elected King of Lombardy in Italy, on death of his cousin’s
I: King of Lombardy in Italy (r 656-61).
was elected KING OF THE LOMBARDS,in 656, when his cousin Gundeberba’s
husband , King Rodoald was assassinated. King Aripert was a Christian of
the Catholic faith, he built a Church dedicated to our Saviors,
at Pavia. An unnamed daughter, married Grimwald, Duke of Benevento, he
also had two sons. Perctarit and Godebert. The brothers ruled as joint
Kings, but they soon quarrelled and Godebert called in his brother in
law, Duke Grimwald to help him,
Grimwald had him killed.
I: joint King of Lombards in Italy (r
661-62). He reign jointly with his brother Perctarit., Being
assassinated by his brother in law Grimwald, the Duke of Benevento, whom
he called for help against his brother Perctarit from Italy, when they
in 662 Grimwald then chased Perctarit from Italy and usurped the throne
from 662 to 673, when Perctarit returned to the throne and ruled until
his death in 689. Godebert had a son named Reginbert.
1: King of the Lombards in Italy (r 700).
was Duke of Turin before succeeding as King. On the death of his cousin,
King Cunnincpert I in 700, he rose in rebellion and marched eastward
with a strong army and meet Ansprnad, the guardian of the Boy King
Luitpert on the plain of Novara and defeated Ansprand and his allies and
won the crown. Howver he dies three months later, he had two sons-
Aripert and Gumbert.
Gumbert, Prince of the Lombards
665, and died in France in Exile in 700, at an unknown
date. On the death of their father in 700, Gumbert’s elder brother
Aripert II succeeded to the throne, but he had to fight Anspand and his
allies for the throne and Aripert being Victoriious, Ansprnd fled,
leaving his family behind. King Aripert II in revenge , mutilated
Ansprand’s wife and one of their Daughters.
returned with an army in 712, and was Victorious, and Aripert II was advised
by his supporters to flee to France and raise an army to fight for his
he drowned crossing the river tecino.
made it successfully to France with his three sons, he fled to France
with his children as he feared that Ansparna would take revenge on his
sons, in revenge for what his brother Aripert had done to his wife and
was his great grandson Manfred III, Comte de Orleans, who in 834
returned to Italy on the request of his nephew, King Lothaire I, King of
Italy (Future Emperor).
from historians of the Lombards, Paulus the deacon, that one of Gumberts
sons, Reginbert, became Comte de Orleansin France, the second Manfred
became the ancestor of the Manfredingi, Counts of Toule, Metz, Orleans,
and Verdun in France, and Manfreingi of Italy , whose descendants
finally finished in Sicily
and in Malta.

in 713 to the daughter of Pepn II de heristal, Duke of the
Franks, and Mayor of the palace of Anastrasia, to the Merovingian Kings.
She is given as having been a Carolingian, but that name did not come
into being until PepinII, assumed the throne from the Franks, she should
really be a ‘Pepian’

in Germant about 715, we also are ignorant of what title he held, except

daughter of Ethelbert II, King of Kent, In 795. he made two donations to
the abbey of Gorze.
