In the area Tavoliere delle Puglie, on the hills of Monte Albano it is possible to admire the ruins of the Suevian-Angionian fortress: in this zone Emperor Frederick II built a real imperial palace and subsequently Charles I of Angiò enclosed the fortress with a wall that included numerous towers.
The accession of Charles I of Angiò, the reason for whom the city walls were built around Lucera, marked the end of Suevian domination: among the most important events were the battle of Benevento in 1266 during which time Manfred was defeated and killed and Corradino (Frederick II’s nephew) was decapitated in Tagliacozza. The accession of King Charles I also caused repercussions in Puglia, as confirmed by the numerous Angionian style buildings.
