Historical background


SICILY - KINGDOM OF SICILY - GUILLAUME II GOOD

(1166-1189)

The Normans drove the Muslims who occupied Sicily for 827. In 1091, after thirty years of fighting, Roger I., brother of Robert Guiscard, took possession of the island. In 1130, his son, Roger II (1130-1154), proclaimed himself king of Sicily, Apulia and Calabria. On the death of Roger II, his son William I inherited the kingdom. The latter died in 1166, leaving Sicily to his son William II. The kings of Sicily were allies in Guelph party and opposed the Holy Roman Empire until 1186, year of marriage Constance (widow of William I and daughter of Roger I) with the Emperor Henry VI. William II died three years later and the Sicilians preferred to leave Sicily to Tancred, Count of Lecce.
