Andrea de Malta
Count of Malta
(-c1300)

Biographical

Charles of Anjou confirmed Andrea as Count of Malta (along with rights to other property), and the right of his heirs in perpetuity in 1290. Andrea then switched his allegiance to King Jaime of Aragon who confirmed his claim to Malta in 1292. Charles of Anjou retaliated by depriving him of his rights and conferred them on Ruggiero de Lauria. This began a century of simultaneous appointments to the county of Malta between Aragon and Anjou.[4]
