Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Barons and Castellans: The Military Nobility of Renaissance Italy contains the table of contents and acknowledgements. The book discusses the role of barons and lords of castles in different regions of Renaissance Italy, their place in political society and their military resources. The barons and castellans of each region of Italy in the mid-fifteenth century, moulded by their homeland's distinct political and physical geography, had their own particular characteristics. A number of Roman barons held lands in both the Papal States and Naples; some members of Roman baronial clans had most or all of their estates in the kingdom.
