The Norman conquest of Southern Italy and Sicily turned the medieval world upside down. The "Normanni" arrived on the Italian mainland in relative obscurity, but within 100 years carved out an Empire for themselves in the Mediterranean. The “First Mafia” challenged the Pope, the might of the Byzantine Empire and became the Sword of Christianity’s fight back against Islam creating the Kingdom of Sicily and the springboard to the conquest of the Holy land.
