Chapter Summary

In Italian historiography, mercenary soldiers were for long regarded as an alien presence, alien in a literal sense because so many of them were foreigners; German, Hungarian, Spanish, Greek, Albanian, French, Swiss, English and Scottish soldiers can all be found fighting in Italy. The aim of this chapter-to reassess the mercenary soldier in a wide chronological and geographical setting-is likely to enhance an understanding of his role and significance in the Italian context. At the same time, it is to be hoped that the focus of this contribution-on the role of the Da Varano lords of Camerino as mercenary captains, as condottieri-will make a useful contribution to the wider picture.
