About March. Oberto Obizzo, conte di Luni


Оберто I Обиццо (итал. Oberto I Obizzo; умер ранее 975) — граф Луни, маркграф Восточной Лигурии (Милана) с 951 года, пфальцграф Италии в 953—960, 962 — 975 годах, сын маркграфа Адальберта I.

Winkhaus, Eberhard. Ahnen zu Karl dem Grossen und Widukind, Ennepetal-Altenvoerde (Westfalen) [u.a.] : Eigenverl. des Verf., 1953, pages 77-78, and Plantagenet Ancestry, pages 60-62 and 167 … … "Otberto I of Este; dead 15 Oct 975; Margrave of Este, 960; Count Palatine of Lucca, 962-972."

"Oberto I." Encyclopædia Britannica. Encyclopædia Britannica Online Library Edition. Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., 2013. Web. 8 Aug. 2013. … … "Oberto Idied Oct. 15, 975 … also called Otbert marquis of eastern Liguria and count of Luni, powerful feudal lord of 10th-century Italy under King Berengar II and the Holy Roman emperor Otto I. His descendants, the Obertinghi, founded several famous Italian feudal clans. He was a Lombard and probably not directly descended from a family that arrived in Italy in the 9th century with Charlemagne and had traditionally ruled the region. Oberto acquired Genoa and Luni (east of Genoa) in 951, when Berengar seized Liguria and gave the eastern section to Oberto. Nine years later Oberto, dissatisfied with Berengar's rule, went to Germany with the bishop of Como and the archbishop of Milan to ask Otto to intervene in Italy. After Otto's conquest and coronation as Holy Roman emperor (962), he made Oberto count palatine, second only to himself in Italy. Four great families, the Este, Malaspina, Pallavicini, and Massa Parodi, are believed to have descended from Oberto's sons."
