Recent spatial approach to the medieval studies has pointed a new way to discuss the political patterns involved in the royalty and the government’s forms. Intent of this panel is to analyze the transformation of an open frontier in a military and political border institutionalized by a central monarchical authority. The study case will be the northern frontier of the Sicilian Kingdom, which offers the possibility to find out the political mechanisms and instruments adopted by the Norman, Staufen, and Angevin kings to define strongly their territorial authority. Critical means will be the mutual and multilevel integration of the sources.
