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 political mechanism of control over a fluid frontier like the maritimal border-areas. The study case will be the southern and western frontiers of the Sicilian Kingdom, which offer the possibility to find out how and to what extent the Angevin kings to definied their territorial authority on trades and traders.
