HISTORY

Bianca Lancia, an Italian noblewoman from Piedmont, was one of the four wives of Emperor Frederick II and probably the one he loved the most. They maintained a long-lasting secret relationship and according to some historians Bianca Lancia was the only true love of his life. She was a kind and delicate person, and was constantly and discreetly present during Frederick’s life. Their marriage was celebrated the day when Bianca Lancia was dying, in order to legitimate the political climb of their son, Manfred, who was the last Swabian King of Sicily.
