Giudicato of Agugliastra

Giudicato of Agugliastra

The "Giudicato" of Agugliastra or Ogliastra was a small and short-lived "giudicato" in Sardinia probably in the tenth and eleventh centuries. It lay south of Gallura, east of Arborea, and north of Cagliari along the Tyrrhenian Sea on the east of the island. Its capital was Ogliastra.

Agugliastra is the only one of the several small "giudicati" known from the Dark Ages. It was annexed by Cagliari early on and thereafter there remained only four "giudicati" on Sardinia.
