The Viking of Capri
This story takes place in the middle of the eleventh century.
A group of Norman pirates, descendents of the renowned and feared Vikings, attack and conquer parts of Southern Italy. One of thepirate clans, the Hauteville family, has its headquarters on the isle of Capri. This clan has been waiting and watching for an opportunity to attack the other clans. The Hautevilles are determined to make Napoli and the surrounding area their own kingdom.
Rodrigo is the head of the family. He and his wife Margarita have two sons, Robert and Guiscard. The elder son, Robert, is brave but kind and he is adored by all his clansmen. Among the clan's followers, Paulo and Garbo, a gypsy brother and sister, love Robert more dearly than do any of his blood relatives.
Rodrigo treats Robert coldly and he is determined to make Guiscard his successor. In fact, Robert is not Rodrigo's child. About twenty years before, Rodrigo had attacked a Spanish merchant vessel off the coast of Majorca. He killed the Spanish captain and captured the captain's wife. This woman, Margarita (although pregnant at the time with the captain's child), became Rodrigo's wife. That child was Robert. Rodrigo became obsessed with the thought that someday revenge would be sought for the slaying of Robert's real father.
By chance Rodrigo learns that Robert is making plans to attack Napoli on his own. The father orders Guiscard to kill his half-brother. Robert tries to avoid this trouble by leaving Capri alone. It's too late, Guiscard and his men overtake Robert....
