Leonardo of Veruli


Leonardo of Veruli

Leonardo of Veruli (d. 1281) (Italian Leonardo da Veroli) was the chancellor to and close adviser of William II Villehardouin, Prince of Achaea.

In 1239, Leonardo married Marguerite, the daughter of Narjot de Toucy, then regent of the Latin Empire.

In 1267, he ratified the Treaty of Viterbo on behalf of William, sealing a marital pact between Philip, the son of Charles I of Sicily and William's daughter Isabella of Villehardouin and providing for the transfer of the Principality to the Angevins.
