Count of Malta
Other names: Niccolò
He was confirmed as Count of Malta by King Manfred in 1257, and lived
mostly in Genoa. As head of the Genoese faction in Malta,
he was in conflict with King Manfred of Sicily and lost his rights to
Malta. This was resolved by a peace treaty between Genoa and Manfred in
1257, and he was made Count of Malta in name only.
