Peace of Caltabellotta

The Peace of Caltabellotta was closed on 31 August 1302 Sicilian town Caltabellotta and was the last of a series of treaties such as the Treaty of Tarascon and the Peace of Anagni, in the conflict between the Angevins and the House Barcelona for power Mediterranean, should especially around Sicily and the Mezzogiorno, enclose.

The treaty divided the old Kingdom of Sicily on in island and mainland part. The island, the Kingdom of Trinacria went to Frederick II, who Mezziogiorno to Charles II, and so followed the actual ownership.

The contract also stipulated that Trinakria should go to Anjou after the death of Frederick II. Until then, Charles II had paid but 100 thousand ounces of gold tribute to Friedrich, except Pope Boniface VIII Frederick II allowed the conquest of Sardinia or Cyprus. Frederick II gave his possessions in Calabria and elsewhere on the mainland and dismissed the son of Charles II, Philip, Prince of Taranto from prison in Cefalù. The marriage between the daughter of Charles II, Eleanor, was arranged with Frederick II.

The consequence of this contract was that Roger de Flor and his Catalan company had to find new masters, as they were no longer needed as a mercenary. They were taken by Andronikos II of Byzantium in service. One of the Almogàvers, Bernat de Rocafort, refused to renounce without financial compensation to its two castles in Calabria. He was captured and died in 1309 in a prison of Robert of Anjou.
