  • Notes 
    • served as a member of the council of Genoa in 1237 and 1244
      His sons were born into the chaotic age of Ghibellines and Guelphs, and it was in free cities like Genoa that the resulting political factionalism was particularly felt. The political philosophy and theological ideology espoused by these contrasting parties were, in reality, fairly complex, and modern analysts have sought to ascribe modern labels to both parties. In practical terms, however, the Ghibellines supported the interests and rights of the Holy Roman Emperor in Italy, while the Guelphs supported those of the Papacy and its Church. Over time, certain families came to identify strongly with one movement or the other.
      The Grimaldi, like the Spinola, were Guelphs. As such, they were opposed to the machinations of the Holy Roman Emperors, and particularly those of Frederick I ("Barbarossa"), who granted the Republic of Genoa suzerainty over the coastal territories of Nice, which included a number of fortified towns allied with the Ghibelline cause.
