Lando IV of Capua

Lando IV (Italian: Landone) was the Lombard prince of Capua from December 1091 until 19 June 1098, in opposition to Norman prince Richard II.[1] Lando belonged to the family of the counts of Teano.[1] The Catalogus Principum Capuae claims that Richard was "for years expelled by the Lombard counts and was made prince of Aversa [only], and afterwards he again held Capua",[2] without naming any of the Lombard counts. A charter from 27 January 1093 shows that for a time Richard II held Capua, but lost it again and was not finally reinstated until he successfully besieged it in 1098.[3]
