Eleonora d'Arborea

She is the most important woman in Italian history, sometimes compared with the French Joan of Ark. Daughter of Mariano IV, and wife of Genoan Brancaleone Doria, she was Judge of Arborea from 1383 to 1404. Her husband was the one who opposed the Spanish invasion with all his might, as well as forming an alliance to obtain the island’s independence. Eleonora’s fame is connected with the Carta de Logu, a legal code in the Sardinian language for the whole of Sardinia. In the city, behind the Torre di Mariano II, in the ancient Via Parpaglia, is the house attributed to the heroine, built in the 16th century.
