This book traces the family history of a Noble/Royal Italian, French, German line of Landi going back to 300 BC Germania. It touches on many European countries and many royal families covering a period of over 2000 years. Some of the stories presented here question conclusions of the official Italian historians and are heavily referenced going back to transcriptions of 5th to 8th-century scrolls from The Landi family private libraries, and other Italian libraries and more than 1200 sources, including the Vatican’s Secret Archives.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book was a serendipitous surprise. I was reading a site online from Antiogianni Landi NYC talking about the Noble Landi family. I knew a little about it, from my grandfather, and knew none of that money followed my great grandfather to the US in 1900. I became completely fascinated with the subject started doing a little research of my own only to find out things that were hard to believe, some incredible stories and the history in Italy full of holes inaccuracies, and just shady history, done by historians who put little effort into finding the official facts. That is why there are over 1200 references in the book.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
All real people mostlt Noble or Royality going back 1300 years. Historical research.
The periods I focus on in this book are from the 8th to 21st centuries in Italy. I give a cursory overview of the Tribe Landi Suevi from the first century, to cover some important historical events they were involved in over the 6 centuries before they appear in Italy. The period with the least historiographical
documentation is the Dark Middle Ages. The term “Dark Ages” itself ultimately derives from the description of the period of “obscurity” in Europe and Italian history during the 9th to 11th centuries, the sacellum obscurum, or “The Dark Age” of the Roman papacy as seen from the perspective of the 14th to 15th century Italian Renaissance. This is the period of the Noble Landi story in northern Italy that has taken great effort to reconstruct, with the help of many resources never used before to
compile their history, and finally from the Landi DNA studies that validate it.
This so called “saeculum obscurum” without any historical doubt, and in large part, can be blamed on the Christian churches (Vatican) suffocating influence on the European populations. The vast secret and enormous Vatican Archives, much of its incunabula, scrolls and manuscripts could probably fill in this period histographically. It was not only general publications of any subject that the church termed heretical, most importantly the Bible itself was not to be read by the common people. Only those the church though capable of interpreting it as they wanted in interpreted.
