This notorius noble family of the county of Arco, settled in this place after the 2nd. marriage of Sebastiano Anzelini, was originary from Besenello, a town at the Valley of river Adige, beside Castel Beseno [Castel Beseno is the  biggest fortress of the province of Trento,  and was built by the powerful counts of Eppan (Appiano in italian), with the Prince bishops permission, in the 11th. Century. It was ruled after some centuries by the family called “de Beseno” after it, followed by the potent family “de Castelbarco”, and since 1470 by the Trapp family as feudataries of the Princes of Trento. In those times the Trapp, of styrian origins, also began their domain on the ancient fiefs of the Lords of Caldonazzo and Ivano. This branch is called Trapp zu Pisein (germanized form for Beseno), the cadet one of the family settled in Matsch, called Trapp zu Matsch].

The territories of the southeastern part of the Principality of Trento, the “Pretura of Rovereto”, neighbor of Beseno fief, were dominated by Venetia in the 14th c. The original spelling of the nickname of Angelini, before settling in Arco, was Anzelini, as it is still today in Besenello, and so seams to be clear their origin in Venice, as Anzolo is the form of Angelo in the venetian dialect. In the town of Besenello is located “Via degli Anzelini” (street of the Anzelinis), where the family had their houses.

That “Domino Sebastiano Anzelini” origin of the nobles Angelini of Arco, was the son of Pietro Anzelini and Cristina (whose nickname still couldn't find), and was born probably in Besenello about the year 1600, but we could'nt find the baptism act together with those of his siblings in 1595, 1603, 1607 and 1611...1 That lagoon of 8 years from 1595 to 1603 may indicate that his father Pietro could have moved temporary to another town as Nomi, or Rovereto...

The fact is that Sebastiano and his wife, Donna Ginevra Benvenuti, were baptizing their first and only son, Pietro, on october 4 of 16242, being his godparents the Egregio Signor Pietro Benvenuti, Nomi's Chanceler, and the Sigra. Angelica Chiusole, wife of Sigr. Giustiniano Chiusole di Trento... Pietro Benvenuti was certainly the grandfather of the child as he had a daughter named Ginevra baptized on march 3 of 1605 in the little village of Chiusole3. Benvenuti and Chiusole are the same family, ancient feudataries in Chiusole from the 1200, and the branch living in Trento, that used first the form “Benvenuti de Chiusole”, used since XVI c. only “de Chiusole”. Pietro Benvenuti and Giustiniano de Chiusole were close relatives, both descending of a Ser Antonio Benvenuti de Chiusole, citizen of Trento, who had died in 1516, a very wealthy man, as he had posessions in Nomi, Aldeno, Pomarolo, Piaz, Chiusole, Lizzana, near Rovereto, near Torbole, and three houses in Trento (one with two towers). He also had family sepultures in S. Cristoforo of Pomarolo and in the Altar of S. Filippo Neri in Sta. Ma. Maggiore in Trento.
Ginevra's mother, Isabetta, was highly probable a member of the Gardumi family, what help to explain why Sebastiano moved after to the County of Arco, where a branch of that family was florishing since the end of the 1500.
Dno. Sebastiano Anzelini was a widower soon after his first son, Pietro, was born, and on 3 of november of 1627 married secondly Catherina Regaiolli4, from Bolognano di Arco, the daughter of Floriano Regaiolli and Antonia Tamburini, from an old family of the county of Arco. The wedding was held at the church of Bolognano, but they moved to Besenello where were borne their first daughters, twins who were baptized as Cristina and Antonia5, as both their grandmothers. After that was born in Besenello a girl, baptized also as Antonia in 1629, and the following, another Antonia was born in Bolognano in 1633, were they had moved escaping from a plague focus in Vallagarina as said some fonts cited in a Census of Arco of 1787.
The fourth child of the couple, another girl, was baptized with the name of the first wife, Ginevra, on oct. 1635 at Bolognano.
After her came Catharina, Francesco, and a first Valentino, on 1637, 38, and 42 respectively, all baptized in Bolognano. The last died as a child if the following was baptized in 1645 with the same name again, Valentino Carlo (a nodar when adult), but already in the church of Massone di Arco, a part of the Oltresarca community, where they have moved and probably began already the construction of what would be with the time one of the beautiest villas of the county. The following child was a girl , baptized as Domenica in 1648, who died early, followed by another Domenica in january 1650, twentyfive years younger than his half brother Pietro.6, who married Domino Giacomo de Nigris from Massone (origin of Negri de Montenegro by her son the nodar Angelo).
Pietro became an important neighbour named when adult as Magnifico Domino Pietro Angelini, citizen both of Arco and Oltresarca, what means he had properties also in Arco, head of the County ruled by the Counts of Arco. He married in Trento on 1665 a rich lady, Dna. Anna Maria Cimonati, daughter of Magnifico Leonardo Cimonati, Magister foundry, and Domina Catharina Tanvini, the daughter of a very wealthy Magister foundry, Magnifico Domino Adamo Tanvini*, from Male in the Val di Sole, who had doted her with the important amount of 400 rainesi, as her other sisters following the testament of Adamo.7 Catharina's brothers, the nodar Giacomo Tanvini, and the priest Francesco, reached the rank of Ritters of the Holy Roman Empire with the predicate of von Meletto, having bought in 1679 a fief in Dalmatia named Meledo by a huge amount of money... The eldest brother, the priest Dr. LL Giovanni Battista, already dead before that, had obtained the arms for the family together with the Law Doctorate in Bolonia in 1640, and after was a Canon in Bressanone. So Magnificos Dominos Tanvini became Illustris Ritter Tanvini von Meletto, and their descendants obtained another distinction becoming von Tanvini zu Meletto und Walchenhoff since 1707, living then no longer in Male but in Caldaro/Kaltern, where they had built one of the most beautiful noble houses (edelsitz) of that town, known as “Tonvin haus”, now the seat of Caldaro's Major.

[*Note - The family Tanvini was originary from Ossana following Don Bottea (genealogist priest of 19th. c) and has no relation with family Panevini already living in Samoclevo when Tanvinis moved about 1550 to Male, in any document Tanvini appeared as Panvini as some trentine fonts mention. Afther moving to Caldaro they are also known as Thonvin. It's extaint since the beginning of 19th c.]

Returning to the family of Magnifico Domino Pietro Angelini and Anna Maria Cimonati, they had seven child, being the firstborn baptized with the name of Sebastiano, as his grand father, in 1666, who would be a prominent nodar of the county of Arco, followed by five girls, Ginevra, Catherina, another Ginevra, Elizabetha and Lucrezia, and finally another boy, baptized Leonardo Valentino, as his grandfather Cimonati and his uncle Valentino.
The girls married into families Canevaro, de Tomasi of Varignano, and two of them into the family Angeli of Dro, these last with succesion, between 1689 and 1700. Of Leonardo Valentino we have no further notices but Sebastiano (II) was the beginning of a dinasty of nodars and lawyers, following the steps of his uncle Valentino Carlo, nodar.
The “Nobile et Spectabilis”** Valentino Carlo married the Nobile Camilla Amistadi, the only daughter and heir of the “Nob. et Splis.” Francesco Amistadi, Chanceler of Arco since 1648 and Vice Comissar of the county since 1657. The marriage was held in 1662, some months after the death of her father. The mother in law of Camilla was Nob. Domnina Gardumi, daughter of the Nob. et Clarissimo Dr. Carlo Gardumi, Dr. in Law and also Commissar of Arco. As can be seen the family always was in the circle of the burger patriciate of Arco, after they became nobles of the Holy Roman Empire.
[**Note - Nobile et Spectabilis was the honorific treatment used for the nodars, before called as Egregio, denominations of roman imperial origin]

Returning to the line of Pietro's son Sebastiano (II), his godparents were the Perillustris et Exmo. Dr. Bartolomeo Malsona, then Commisar of Castel Penede jurisdiction, and the mentioned lady Nob. Domnina Gardumi.
He worked as a collegiate nodar of Arco since 1692 until 1731. In 1698 he married the Nobile Antonia Taddei of Croviana, eldest daughter of Nobile Giacomo Antonio Taddei by his first marriage with Antonia Martinelli, at the time married secondly with Nob. Joana Panevini, daughter of the Asessor of the Val di Sole Dr. Giovanni Panevini and a Pilati of Tassullo. No wonder why Sebastiano was related with Croviana if his grandmother Catharina Tanvini was of a family from Male, a neighbour village distant only 2 miles from Croviana, and Taddei family was already related with Tanvini family by the marriage of a granduncle of Antonia, Lorenzo Taddei, with a grandaunt of Sebastiano, Anna Tanvini. Taddei family was one of the most importants of the place since the early 1500, being of the men of trust of Counts Thun since then, and aparently was related by blood with Barons Pezzen (Don Bottea, a genealogist priest of 19th c.  noted that, I found many clues in that way, but we'll analize that theme in a future article). So the marriage took place in the little church of S. Giorgio of Croviana with the presence of Sebastiano's cousin Illris. Adamo (II) Tanvini (Noble of the HRI), and his uncle, Nob. Domenico Cimonati (a nodar in Trento). The bride, Antonia, was a very rich heiress, and of the entourage of Counts Thun of Croviana, goddaughter herself of countess Anna Massenza Ginevra von Thun.

Probably were present in the ceremony: her father, Nobile Giacomo Antonio Taddei, with his wife, her mother in law, Nob. Joana Panevini-Pilati, their cousins in common, that's Domino Gian Michele Taddei-Tanvini and his wife Nob. Lucia Carelli, and Domino Antonio Taddei-Tanvini with his third wife Marina Conci-Bevilacqua (also a relative of both of the new couple), and possibly being there in the ceremony, of the uncles Taddei only Bartolomeo (because Nob. LL Dr. Giovan Michele, and Nob. Gianbattista were probably in Tirol where they lived, and Elizabeth married a Bezzi of Cusiano had died the year before). There could have been also present Antonia's cousins Domenico, Cristoforo and Catharina Bezzi-Taddei, who where contemporaries of Antonia an lived in the near village of Cusiano.
From Tanvini family only a few were living still in Male as Adamo already mentioned, and were in far places... We think that if Illris Dr. Domenico Tanvini, elder brother of Adamo (II), was present, he would have been the main testimony.
Certainly were also many other relatives and friends of the main families of Croviana, Male and Magras, Dimaro, Cles, etc. as members of families: de Angelis, Belleni of Cles (family of Antonia's grandmother), de Bevilacqua, Antonietti, Bertucchi (Dr. Giovan Tomasso Bertucchi was married with the mother of Antonia's mother in law, Nob. Joana Pilati de Tassullo, widower of Giovanni Panevini), Conci, Fiorini, Lorengo (ancient nobles of Caldes), Martinelli (family of the bride's mother, from Dimaro), Ramponi of Magras, many times related along two centuries, the recently arrived Sartori, from Piano, who had bought the ancient fief of Belveder, Scaramella, of Caldes, and many others, almost all nobles or high burgers of those communities. We can think it was impossible the assistants can enter in the little church of S. Giorgio, so most were located probably at the road in front of it.
The new couple settled in Massone di Arco, in the beautiful villa at a border of the village facing the sun and the air that comes from Lake Garda.

They give birth to twelve sons between 1700 and 1721, of whom at least 7, three men and 4 women, reached the adult age, having one son, Giacomo Antonio (* 1708), inherited the office of nodar, and becoming Chanceller of Arco jurisdiction, origin of the branch ennobled as Angelini von Massonendorf und Brabienhof, and the other two male sons become priests, Pietro (Canon at the Collegiate Church of Arco), and Giovanni Battista. The four women married into families of social position, Anna Maria (* 1700) with a Domino Pietro (Barthei ?) of S. Massenza, Catarina (* 1703) with Dno. Giovanni Vincenzo Danieli from Lasino, who will become the origin of the family of captains and administrators of Castel Ivano in Valsugana, and so known as Danieli de Ivano, (Danieli-Vallandro/Danieli-de Gera and Danieli-Vettorelli/Danieli-Castelrotto) family who will also become related with their relatives Negri di Montenegro (see the article in this blog), Joana (*1707), who married Domino Giovanni Alovisi, from Mogno di Arco, of one of the wealthiest families of the County of Arco, owners of a great Villa in Mogno, also related with Negri de Montenegro family whose mother was Adornina Alovisi, whose descendance will become of the main importance in the offices of the county on 19th c., and finally Ginevra (* 1717) married to Domino Giovanni Battista de S. Pietro or Sampieri, resident in Arco but from Novara, mother of Lucia Sampieri, wife of Gioacchino Domenico Negri (de Nigris, de Negri, Negri di Montenegro) who was also descendant of Angelini family by Domenica f. Pietro f. Sebastiano already mentioned, so they married under dispense of consanguinity...
We will continue this article in a 2nd. part in the future with the branch of Nobles of the HRI descendants of Giacomo Antonio Angelini and Barbara Marcabruni. (Angelini-Caneri/ Angelini-de Prati/ Angelini-Grimani...)

The social ascension of Madernini family at the late XVI century

The social ascension of Madernini family at the late XVI century, through a marriage with a member of their protector Lords family, Counts of Lodron

Many years ago, searching for familiar traces in the parish archives of Villa Lagarina, I found a relevant document that explains clearly how began the Madernini family raise, from simple officers of the lodronian administration of their fiefs in the Val Lagarina region of Trento (Castellano and Castelnuovo), to be one of the prominents families of those places.
The document is a marriage act, strangely never mentioned in any source about Madernini family, that involves a lady of the Lodron family, whose name was Virginia, with a member of the Madernini family.

 Lodron in Nogaredo built by 
 Count Nicolo II and Castle
 Noarna or Nuovo behind

As it is said in the act, she was a natural daughter of Count Paris (VI) (born c. 1525-1566), undoubtedly the son of Count Nicolò I (1475-1556) from his 2nd marriage with Css. Beatrice de Castellalto. Count Paris VI was rightfully married with Barbara von Lichtenstein-Kastelkorn with whom he previously had at least five children, the elder of whom was count Nicolò II (1549-1621), who with his first wife, Dorothea von Welsperg, will be the father of the famous Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, Paris von Lodron (1586-1663), a few years after the marriage of Virginia, Nicolò's II half sister as was said, and so an aunt of the prestigious prince...
The name of Virginia's mother is never mentioned in any of the documents I had access, but was probably a lady of the lodronian environment and not a woman of low condition, as members of the family were present in the ceremony of their marriage. Many counts of Lodron had illegitimate childs, almost all socially recognized as 
that as one can see they were always protected by their fathers and relatives, and held important positions in the region... The most extended branch was that called first “de Casa Lodron de Santo Antonio”, cause of the place of Santo Antonio in Pomarolo, descendants of the priest rector of Pomarolo, Count Andrea (c. 1480-1550), one of the sons of Count Paris IV and the venetian noble Veronesa Coppo. Other was that of the descendants of Andrea's brother, the priest Count Alessandro, branch after called Rinaldi, cause of the name of his natural son Rinaldo.
For all of them it was styled to use not the nickname of “de Lodron”, but that of “de Casa Lodron” (of the House Lodron). Counts of Arco use the same way to identificate their illegitimate childs as not like “d'Arco” but as “de Casa de Arco”. There were other lines identificated also with the places of birth, like the line of “de Casa Lodron de Pedersano”, and “de casa Lodron de Villa (Lagarina)”, of whom I can not still identify precisely their origins but were certainly all descendants of Paris IV and Veronesa Coppo.
For all of them was used the honorific treatment of “Messer” or “Madonna”, and never that of Count or Countess reserved for the legitimate descendance.
The line of Villa Lagarina seems to be descendants of the early youth of Counts Felice (c.1530-1584), or Agostino II (1525-after 1574) sons of Count Agostino and the noble of Padova Maddalena Bagarotto. In the first case Messer Auxilio de Casa Lodron would have been the son of a young count Felice of about 15 years, as he may was born about 1545 and not after 1547, having himself baptized his daughter Giulia in 1562... Felice is a more probable father cause Agostino studied in Merano and after was a squire of a Bohemian king...
But let´s return to Virginia, at her marriage with Messer Giorgio Madernini were present the “Magnifico Signor Antonio de Casa Lodron de Sto. Antonio”, the most prestigious of the illegitimate members of the family as a testimony of what we told about she was considered a part of the family.
Virginia was already carrying a son of Giorgio because their first son, called Madernino as his paternal grandfather, was born only a month and a few days after the marriage... His godmother was the “Sigra. Dorothea de Lodron de Sto. Antonio” and the godfathers (more than one, what then was usual) a Messer Giovanni son of Girardo Madernini and the “Magco. Sigr. Raffaele Marchi” of Florence.
Madernino Madernini was baptized in Nogaredo on 19 april 1582. He married about 1607 the “Nobildonna Lucrezia” who was probably of a noble family of Rovereto, cause the act of marriage doesn't exist in Villa Lagarina records, and many of the godparents of their children belonged to the noble families Rosmini, Telani and Costioli of that place, appart from those from the Lodron family as Madernino's uncle Count Nicolò II, godfather of Paris Madernini on 1610, his cousin countess Barbara, godmother of Catharina Madernini in 1613, who was Nicolò's daughter and sister of the future Salzburg's Prince Archbishop Paris de Lodron, himself godfather in 1614 of my possible ancestor Francesca Madernini, Count Massimiliano (1576-1635), a half brother of Paris VI, and so granduncle of Madernino, godparents of Francesco Hieronimo Madernini in 1617 together with Css. Anna Maddalena von Thun-Bragher, the first wife of Count Alfonso de Lodron, a brother of the already mentioned Massimiliano.
The Madernini were already in the first line of the families of Villa Lagarina though another marriage will strengthen that position, that of Paris Madernini, borned in 1610, already mentioned, with the Noble Orsola Priami, also borned in Villa Lagarina in 1610, the daughter of Noble Ippolito Francesco Priami and the Noble Lucrezia de Coredo or von Coreth, granddaughter of the Captain of Villa Lagarina Alberto Priami and Noble Orsola Battaglia, greatgranddaughter of Messer Nicolò Priami, originary from Verona, Vicar of the jurisdiction of Villa Lagarina for the Counts Lodron in the middle of XVI century.

Palace Priami- Madernini in Villa Lagarina

Their son Giovanni Alberto Madernini, borned in 1644 would be Imperial Notary in Villa Lagarina from 1672 to 1720, and would marry in 1672 the Noble of Trento Claudia Particella, daughter of Gian Gaudenzio Particella, of a family of the first line of the entourage of the Princes of Trento, favorites of the Princes Madruzzo, and a nephew of another Claudia Particella who was the lover of Carlo Emanuele Madruzzo (1599-1658) the last Prince Bishop of that dinasty. His grandsons Giuseppe Alberto and Francesco Antonio would access to the Nobility of the Empire as Adels von Taubenberg. The blood of Giuseppe Alberto still remains in two branches of the family Marzani of Villa Lagarina, nobilitated as Marzani von Steinhof in 1769 and that reached to the title of Counts Marzani von Steinhof und Neuhaus in 1790, at the same time that many other powerful families of Trento. One derives from Giuseppe Alberto's son, Adamo Madernini von Taubenberg, and Bss. Maria Felicitas Ceschi de Sta. Croce (Freiherren line), whose daughter Rosina borned in 1803, married Count Agostino Marzani v. St. u. N. And the other from Giuseppe Alberto´s daughter Maria Theresia Madernini v. T. who married Count Giorgio Federico de Montalbano, and whose daughter Maria Guglielmina de Montalbano married Count Lorenzo Marzani v. St. und N., a brother of the mentioned Agostino.
Francesca Madernini, borned in 1614 and already mentioned, married a Noble Domenico____ of Brentonico, whose nickname in the marriage act dated january 25th 1633 in the books of Villa Lagarina is missed, probably cause the marriage wasn't held there but in the Church of S. Carlo of Rovereto, what reinforces my idea that Noble Lucrezia, Francesca's mother, was of a roveretan family.
I finally found very probably that Domenico belonged to the Donati family cause they had many descendence in Brentonico in which the name Madernino appeared frecuently and other previous reasons between the relationship of both families, but that is the subject of a future article...

La famiglia Giordani / de Jordanis di Vezzano - Prima Parte (Aggiornato 30.7.2017 - testo in azzurro)

La famiglia Giordani o de Jordanis de Vezzano ebbe inizio in torno al Trecento, ed essi appaiono già col cognome essato, comme sindaci da Vezzano in documenti fino al inizio dal 400. La villa da Vezzano e una dalle piú antiche localitá dal Trentino già che ha origine nel oppidum romano menzionato comme Vitianum.(vedi in , ed in , in Territorio e Storia - Le frazione - Vezzano) Non sappiamo oggi si hanno cualche relazione col Giordani di Molveno, localitá relativamente prossima a Vezzano, dato che il origine patronimico dal cognome non permete aseverare questo. Gli armi di ambidue hanno stelle nel disegno, ma quello non prova niente perche tale figura araldica e molto commune nella regione, tanto nelle arme de famiglie dei “gentiles” (nobiles rurales) comme in altre che ebbero la nobiltá imperiale (Torresani per ess.) o matricolata dal Tirolo (Altspaur per ess.). I Giordani di Vezzano furono innalzati alla nobiltá dal Impero per l’imperatore Ferdinando nel 1546[1], essendo giá personne di spicco nella Vezzano dal quattrocento comme se trovano menzionati in documenti anteriori. Francesco Giordani (francisci zordan –sic-) e citato comme sindaco da Vezzano in uno documento[2] redatto a Trento nel 2 set.1429 in una controversia tra le comunità da Cadine, Civezzano, Sopramonte e Terlago da una parte e quelle da Calavino, Lasino, Povo e Vezzano dal altra, ed in altro documento[3] redatto a Vezzano nel 10 gennaio 1478 se fa menzione a una “regola” reunita nella casa dal Ser Giordano figlio dal defunto Francesco Giordani (domo s[4] jordany qd s francisci jordany – sic-). I domini Filippo e suo fratello Francesco, furono investiti nel Castello del Buonconsiglio, nel 4.12.1545, di una casa in Vezzano, vicina Reversi, Bellesini e Carpella, ed un altra volta nel 14.5.1565.[5]
I piu noti membri de questa famiglia furono nel sec. XVI il Nob et Magco. Baptista de Jordanis -sic-, personaggio di spicco in torno ai Madruzzo, fratello dal menzionato Filippoed il Nob. et Splis. Joannis de Jordanis, notaio e capitano de Vezzano, figlio da Filippo Forse corrisponde al sepolcro dal primo la lapida stemmata che existe nella chiesa di Vezzano, oggi non piu nel suolo ma adossata nelle mure dalla facciata all’interno, datata 1574. Il secondo apparisce in molti documenti dalla seconda metà dal’500 e i primi anni dal ‘600. Nelle fine dal secolo XVII i Giordani ebbero distacco nella corte dal Ppe. Vescovo Francesco Alberti de Poja –e possibile che parentati collui atraverso familie dalla Giudicarie comme i nobili Endrizzi de Cillá (anche Cilladi ) dal Bleggio inf. da che discendono questi Giordani ora i Serafini / de la Bona da Villa Banale-. Attuarono in quella corte il Nob. Aliprando de Jordanis, nipote dal citato notaio Giovanni, comme “Camerarius” o sia amministratore dal vescovo, ed il Nob. Joannis de Jordanis, -pronipote dal medesimo notaio, figlio dal Nob. Aldrighetto de Jordanis, cittadino de Trento e fratello di Aliprando-, che apparisce in documenti comme “Stafferius” o sia scolta. Altra figlia di Aldrighetto, la Dna. Catharina de Jordanis era maritata con il Magco. Dno. Giacomo Garbari, da vecchia famiglia da Vezzano, che ebbero sucezione nel ramo piu prestigioso de questa famiglia, con rampolli in Vezzano -che allacció nel ottocento con i nobili de Eccher de Mezzocorona- ed anche in Caldonazzo nel fine settecento – allacciarono ai de Negri da Calavino (vide in questo blog)-. Questi furono propietari dalla Filanda Garbari e poi dal Hotel Caldonazzo, e dalla medesima un ramo abitó anche in Pergine (fine ottocento), quello dal pittore Tullio Garbari. Dal mentato Nob. Joannis de Jordanis, maritato la Nob. Anna Maria Marinelli, da Trento de origine Nonese, derivó un ramo in Trento, sempre cittadino il di cui existe tuttavia discendenza. (continuerá).

Apuntes sobre la familia Negri o de Nigris / Notizie sulla famiglia Negri o de Nigris (Actualizado 6.8.2017)

Negri o de Nigris – Antigua familia de Chiarano de Arco, que toma el patronímico Nigro (antiguo y común nombre medieval italiano) de algún individuo de al menos el ‘300 ya que es ya mencionada a inicios del ‘400 en documentos de la localidad (un bartholomeo “nigre” -sic- aparece en un documento de Arco del 12 de febr. de 1403 (Pergamene Arco - Dozzina 11, Nro. 4, en línea 12 y al final en grupo de día martes) entre los implicados en una controversia por el uso de un canal de riego. En un documento de Arco de julio de 1510 (Dozzina 9, Nro. 2, en líneas 3 y 4 aparece como testigo –lo que indica cualidades de boni homine- un tal nigro f. qd. anty nigri de clarano -sic- ( es decir Nigro hijo del difunto Antonio Nigri de Chiarano). En los muros de la iglesia de Chiarano un texto “affrescato” en uno de su muros rememora la donación, junto a otras, de 50 lire rainese efectuada por el Mro. Nicoló delli Negri -sic- en el correr del ‘500.

Negri o de Nigris – Antica famiglia da Chiarano de Arco, che prende il patronimico Nigro (antico ed usuale nomme medievale italiano) da cualche personna dal trecento dato che e menzionata nell’inizi dal quattrocento in documenti dalla cittá ( bartholomeo “nigre” -sic- aparisce in documento di Arco dal 12 de febr. de 1403 (Dozzina 11, Nro. 4, línea 12 ed al finale nel grupo dal martedi) nelle implicati in una controversia per il uso de un canale d’irrigazione. In documento di Arco da luglio dal 1510 (Dozzina 9, Nro. 2, in linee 3 e 4 aparisce comme teste –indicativo dalla qualitá da “boni homine”- : nigro f. qd. anty nigri de clarano -sic- ( e dire Nigro figlio dal defunto Antonio Nigri da Chiarano). Nelle mure dalla chiesa de Chiarano un testo “affrescato” fa menzione al legato de 50 lire rainese fatta per il Mro. Nicoló delli Negri -sic- nel trascorso dal cinquecento. 

La genealogía precisa, generación por generación, solo puede hacerse después de la existencia de archivos parroquiales, siendo los de Arco de los de más antiguos ya que contienen actas de bautismo desde inicios del ‘500 donde encontramos los bautismos en Chiarano de muchos miembros de esta familia, pertenecientes a los hijos de diversos matrimonios, lo que indica que ya entonces la familia se había multiplicado considerablemente, así como notas sueltas entre las actas de su contribución a la Iglesia local. Esta reconstrucción genealógica ha sido posible gracias al empleo de los microfilms de la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los últimos Días – Mormones que contiene microfilmados todos los libros parroquiales de la Diócesis de Trento (como de otras diócesis de Italia).

La genealogia essaustiva generazione tra generazione solo se puo eseguire dopo dalla esistenza degli archivi parrocchiale, dove troviamo atte de battesimi de molte membri di questa famiglia fino dalla prima meta dal ‘500 in Chiarano, appartenente ai figli de diverse matrimoni, e anotazione disperse tra quelle di suo contributo alla chiesa.

Conde Paris de Lodron - Count Paris of Lodron - Graf Paris von Lodron - edited jan.2017

Un homenaje al Conde Paris de Lodron, antepasado de las casas reales europeas (quién inspiró el Paris de “Romeo y Julieta” de Shakespeare)
An hommage to Count Paris of Lodron, an ancestor of European reigning houses (who inspired Shakespeare’s Paris of “Romeo and Juliet”) 

Paris de Lodron y su descendencia (with new additions of january 2017)

Paris of Lodron and its descendance (English translation of january 2017)

Si la nobleza representa el reconocimiento de una determinada preminencia en una determinada época (ver artículo en éste blog), que el gobierno de los hombres quiso se perpetuara muchas veces inmerecidamente, diré que siento orgullo de algunas de mis raíces nobles. Más aún de los para mi más legítimos “nobles” de quienes desciendo, aquellos que son famosos por sus logros además de por su origen. Como Paris “el grande” de Lodron, caballero que vivió a caballo entre los siglos XIV y XV (fallecido 1439), sin duda valeroso guerrero como para, siendo un noble de provincia de una zona limítrofe entre Brescia y Trento, merecer el grado de General de la Serenísima, la República de Venecia, y obtener de la misma el condado de Cimbergo.

If nobility means the recognition of a certain preeminence in a specific time, that the government of men wants to perpetuate many times undeservedly, I am proud of some of my noble roots. Even more of those most legitimate "nobles" from whom I descend, those that are famous for their achievements and not only for their origins. As Paris "the great" of Lodron, knight who lived between c. XIV and XV (died in  1439), undoubtedly so brave warrior as, being a noble of the area between Brescia and Trento, deserve the honor to be General of the "Serenissima", the Republic of Venice and to obtain of it the county of Cimbergo.

Había combatido por la Serenísima contra las tropas de Gian Galeazzo Visconti en las montañas de Brescia ya en el 1401, socorrido al Gattamelata en Brescia en julio de 1438 y el mismo mes liberado la Val Camonica junto a Bartholomeo Colleoni, ayudado en setiembre del mismo nuevamente al Gattamelata en su retirada de Brescia a Verona, y al mismo tiempo reconquistado su territorio. Enero del 1439 lo encuentra victorioso en numerosas acciones militares pero en febrero debe rendirse en Castel Lodrone. En abril moría a causa de la fiebre. Su fama fue tal en su época que se reflejó en el personaje del Paris prometido de Julieta en la novela italiana de “Los amantes de Verona”, del autor vicentino Luigi Dal Porto, que el gran Shakespeare transmutó en la obra inmortal de “Romeo y Julieta”.

He had fight for  the "Serenissima" against the troops of Gian Galeazzo Visconti on Brescia mountains already in 1401, helped the Gattamelata on july of 1438 and the same month liberated the Val Camonica together with Bartholomeo Colleoni, helping again the Gattamelata in september on his withdrawal from Brescia to Verona and at the same time reconquered his territory. January of 1439 find him victorious on many military actions, but in february must surrender in Castel Lodrone. In april died cause of the fever. He was so famous in his time, that was reflected in the character of that Paris promissed to Juliet in the italian novel "The lovers of Verona" of the vicentine author Luigi Dal Porto, that inspired the great Shakespeare's immortal play "Romeo and Juliet".

De Paris el Grande descienden todas las actuales casas reinantes de Europa, a través de la línea de su hijo el Conde Giorgio y su nieta (bisnieta  para algunos genealogistas) countess Anna de Lodron, por su segundo matrimonio con el Reichserbschenk Erasmus von Limpurg (primero fue cónyuge del célebre militar Georg von Frundsberg, creador del cuerpo de los “lansquenetes”, gestor de la victoria contra Francisco I de Francia en Pavia en 1525 entre muchas otras hazañas), Pero tambien a través de la línea de su hijo el Conde Pietro y su nieta la condesa Giulia de Lodron de su matrimonio con el Conde Alessandro d'Arco (de otra potente familia noble trentina). Ambas líneas convergen en el S.XVIII en la Csa, Luise Reuss-Schleiz, casada con el Duque Johannes August de Sachsen-Gotha, y posteriormente muchas otras veces.

From "Paris the Great" descend all the actual ruling houses of Europe, through the line of his son the Count Giorgio and his granddaughter (great granddaughter for some genealogists) Anna of Lodron,  from her second marriage, with the Reichserbshenk Erasmus von Limpurg (she was first the wife of the famous Georg von Frundsbergcreator of the body of the "landsknechts", responsible of the victory against Francis I of France in Pavia in 1525 between many feats). But also through the line of Count Pietro and his granddaughter countess Giulia of Lodron from her marriage with Count Alessandro d'Arco (of other powerful noble trentine family). menteBoth lines converge in the 18th c. on the countess Luise Reuss-Schleiz, married the Duke Johannes August of Saxe-Gotha, and later once again many times.

Tanto Elizabeth II de Gran Bretaña como su marido el príncipe Philip de Grecia, así como Juan Carlos I de España y su cónyuge Sofía de Grecia (los tres últimos por varios “costados”), pasando por la mayor parte de las familias de la alta nobleza, sobre todo germánica, cuentan entre sus antepasados con las mentadas condesas Anna y Giulia de Lodron. Las líneas principales pasan por dos distintas estirpes de los Condes de Erbach ( la de Fuerstenau y la de Schonberg) para desembocar en las casas de Sajonia-Coburgo-Gotha y de Sajonia-Hildburghausen, y  los condes de Wolfstein para culminar en las de Dinamarca y de Sajonia-Weimar-Eisenach, que llegan a fines del S.XIX entroncadas con casi todas las casas ya reinantes o pretendientes de Europa o constituyendo nuevas dinastías (Bélgica, Bulgaria y Rumania). Los cuatro abuelos y cinco de los bisabuelos del actual Rey Felipe Juan de España descienden de ambas líneas y otro bisabuelo de la última mentada línea de Wolfstein.

Elizabeth II of Great Britain as his husband Philip of Greece, as Juan Carlos I de España and his wife Sophia of  Greece (the last three by several sides), passing through most of the families of the high nobility, chiefly germanic, count between their ancestors the referred countesses Anna and Giulia of Lodron. The principal lines pass mainly through two lineages of the Counts of Erbach (those of Fuerstenau and of Schonberg), to reach the houses of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and of Saxe-Hildburghausen and a line of the Counts of Wolfstein to reach the house of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, arriving to the 19th c. linked with almost all of the already reigning houses of Europe or constituting new dinasties (Belgium, Bulgaria, Romania). The four grandfathers and five of his greatgrandfathers of  actual King Felipe Juan de España descend of both first mentioned lines and another of the last mentioned line of Wolfstein.

¿Acaso podía haber imaginado Paris el Grande desde su modestos feudos provincianos semejante destino para algunos de sus descendientes? Entre tantas líneas de sucesión, algunas mantienen su lugar en el Trentino de origen, más o menos modestas, como las muchas líneas ilegítimas de la Val Lagarina, una de las cuales está entre las de mis antepasados. En general protegidas por sus padres, algunos de ellos sacerdotes, de la rama de los mentados condes tb. señores de Castellano y Castelnuovo (o Noarna), cuyo principal exponente fue otro Conde Paris de Lodron (1586- 1653), Ppe. Arzobispo de Salzburgo , enlazaron con buenas familias de la nobleza o la burguesía locales. De allí que otras familias de mis ancestros, cuyas líneas convergieron con las de los cónyuges de estos ilegítimos “de Casa Lodron" (como eran llamados para distinguirlos de las líneas legítimas) también se pueden encontrar en el tronco de algunas de las casas reales antes mencionadas, como los altoatesinos Botsch von Zwingenberg (curiosamente de origen florentino). La línea de Vallagarina era además descendiente de los potentes Niederthor, familia principal de Bolzano que también se encuentra en muchos troncos reales a través de largos caminos que confluyen en los Savoia. 
Could have imagined Paris the Great, from his modest provincial fiefs such a destiny for some of his descendants? Between the many lines of succession, some still are in their original Trentino, more or less modests, as many of the illegitimate branches of Vallagarina, one of which is part of my ancestry, Generally protected by their fathers, some of them priests, of the branch of the counts that were also Lords of Castellano and Castelnuovo (Noarna), whose principal exponent was another count Paris of Lodron (1586- 1653), Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, linked with good families of the local nobility and bourgeosie. So other families of my ancestry, whose lines converged with that of the spouses of that illegitimates of "House Lodron" (as were called to distinguish them of the legitimate lines), can be found in the stem of some of the royal houses mentioned, as the south tirolers Botsch von Zwingenberg (curiously of florentine origin). The line of Vallagarina was also descendant of the potents Niederthor, a principal family of Bozen that can also be find in the stems of many royal families through long paths that join in the house of Savoy.
