  • Note:
    "No chapter of history more resembles a romance than that which recrods the sudden rise and brief splendor of the house of Hauteville. In one gneration the sons of Tancred de Hauteville passed from the condition of squires in the ANormal vale
    of Cotentin to Kinghoos in the richest island of the Southern Sea. THe Norse adventurers becaue sultans of an Oriental capital. The sea-robbers assumed, thogether with the sceptre, the culture of an Arabian court . . . lived to mate their
    daughters with princes and to sway the politics of Europe with gold. . . WHat they wrought, whether wisely or not, for the ultimate advantage of Italy, endures to this day, while the work of so many emperors, republics, and princes, has passed
    and shifted like the scenes in a pantomime. Through them the Greeks, the Lombards and the Moors were extinguished in the South. The Papacy was checked in its attempt to found a province of St. Peter below the Tiber. THe republics of Naples,
    Caeta, Amlfi, which might have rivalled perchance with Milan,k Genoa, and Florence were subdued to a master's hand. In short, to the Norman, Italy owed that kingdom of the two Sicilies; which formed one third of her political balance; and which
    proved the cause of all her most serious revolutions." p. 147
