The city of Naples was probably founded by the Greeks around the eighth century BC, just kilometers from the older town of Partenope; this ‘new town’ or ‘Napoli’s’ has been absorbing the influences of its settlers and invaders ever since. Romulus Augustus, last emperor of the Roman Empire, was imprisoned here after being overthrown in 476. In the sixth century, Naples was conquered by the Byzantines, and it was one of the last duchies to fall to the all-conquering Normans in 1039, as they founded the Kingdom of Sicily. In 1266 Naples and the kingdom of Sicily were given by Pope Clement IV to Charles of Anjou, who moved the capital from Palermo to Naples. In 1284 the kingdom was split in two, and stayed that way till 1816, when they would form the kingdom of Two Sicilia’s.
