OUR FRESHEST IDEAS
WE ALWAYS MAKE SURE WERE SERVING UP
A Hist o r ic al Event
Corrado Castelli, a Palermo Baron, was asked by King Frederick IV in 1376 to help Guglielmo Murina,
Castellan at Castel al Mare (St Angelo), quell a Maltese armed insurrection which resulted in the occupation
of the city of Mdina. Corrado is the Kings de facto representative in this mission. As a result, he is in
charge and puts pressure on Murina to move out of his safe castle in Borgu to besiege Mdina. King
lrederick IV was the one who ordered a deployment o Genoese to ght Pellegrino, besieged in Mdina
at an earlier date.
The Maltese rebels are capitanati or led by Lanceas or Lanca Gatto. The fact that Gatto headed this
rebellion is astonishing as he had been honoured with the title of Militesby the same King in person
just three years earlier so he must have had a very good reason to lead the revolt. A notary by profession
and serving as jurat in Mdina, Gatto could not tolerate and may have been greatly concerned about the
degenerating economic situation which would have meant he was at risk of losing much of the wealth he
had amassed. In any case, whatever his reasons were, most of Malta and Gozo was in a state of revolt.
It is important to note that as a Baron rom Palermo, Castelli - was airly strong both nancially and
militarily and thus able to rally his own armed entourage for this endeavour. These armed men may
not have equalled the Genoese force which had been sent by King Frederick just three years earlier, but
certainly powerful enough to end an armed siege. Castelli would have had knights and men at arms, well
trained in battle through continuous connict in the eudal Sicilian wars.
Interestingly enough, Corrados family stayed on in Malta and were given lands by the grateful King Frederick. This may also
show that the life of the nobility in Malta was not bad at all. His son, Manfred also married Murinas daughter. He becomes
castellan, but has no children. It may be because of this that he funded the building of a church in Rabat, dedicated to St
Agatha, were his coat of arms can still be seen. The coat of arms of Guglielmo Murina should actually show a murena head
above the red bands - a representation of the moray eel. Thanks to this another Maltese chapel reveals an engaging story.
