Centurione I Zaccaria
Centurione I Zaccaria (1336–1376) was a powerful noble in the Principality of Achaea in Frankish Greece. In 1345 he succeeded his father, Martino Zaccaria, as baron of Damala and lord of one half of the Barony of Chalandritsa, and in 1359 he acquired the other half. In about 1370 he was named Grand Constable of Achaea and received also the Barony of Estamira. He also thrice held the post of bailli (viceroy) for the principality's Angevin rulers.
He died in 1376/77, during his third bailliage.

- Andronikos Asanes Zaccaria, Baron of Chalandritsa and Arcadia, father of Centurione II Zaccaria, Prince of Achaea in 1404–1432.
- Martino, known only from his participation in the Battle of Gardiki in 1375.
