Benevento
The Essential
The former capital of the formidable Samnites fell to the Romans in 321 BC and changed its name from Malaventum to Beneventum. The seat of a Lombard duchy, then subsequently a powerful principality, the town was the site of the famous Battle of Benevento, in which Charles of Anjou defeated King Manfred and became the new King of Sicily.
