Duchy of Amalfi

The '''Duchy of Amalfi''' ( ) was a ''de facto'' independent state centred on the Southern Italian (Southern Italy) city of Amalfi during the 10th and 11th centuries. The city and its territory were originally part of the larger ''ducatus Neapolitanus'', governed by a patrician (Patrician (post-Roman Europe)), but it extracted itself from Byzantine (Byzantine Empire) vassalage and first elected a duke (dux) (or doge) in 958. It rose to become an economic powerhouse, a commercial centre whose merchants dominated Mediterranean and Italian (Italy) trade for a century before being surpassed and superseded by the other maritime republics of the North (Northern Italy), like Pisa (Republic of Pisa), Venice (Republic of Venice), and Genoa (Republic of Genoa). In 1073, Amalfi lost its independence and fell to the Normans, from whose yoke it failed in two separate attempts to free itself.
