The House of Natoli is an ancient aristocratic Italian family of the feudal nobility dating back to the year 839 AD. The family originated in Provence – where they were known as de Nanteuil[1][2] – first gaining power in Sicily and Naples during the reign of Frederick II.[3]

The Natolis were a warrior knights family (milites, bellatores) princely house, a political dynasty and banking family, that began to gather prominence under Duke of Nemours legacy. The dynasty de Nanteuil (di Natoli), Châtillon, de Nemours and de Villebéon are branches of the same family.[4]

  • The Princes of Sperlinga, Dukes of Archirafi, Barons of Mojo, Bilici, San Bartolomeo, San Piero Patti, etc., that started with the prince Giovanni Forti Natoli, son of Blasco Natoli and Lanza and of Domenica Giambruno and Perna.
