The first section of this chapter describes the Veronese League, the group of city communes that first rose in rebellion against Emperor Frederick Barbarossa around LLQO, of which no documentation survives. However, a number of chronicles, usually contemporary with these events, describe its rise, offering varying points of view. The work of Cardinal Boso is the only source that gave a name to the rebellious alliance–Veronensium Societas–translated as ‘League of the Veronese March’. The second section describes the formation of the Lombard League from 1167 to 1183. It also deals with the Verona, Bergamo, and Piacenza, that is, respectively, a former member of the Veronese League, a former imperial supporter, and one of the cities that had been defeated by the emperor in 1162.

Keywords:   Lombard League, Veronese League, Emperor Frederick Barbarossa, Cardinal Boso, Bergamo, Piacenza, Veronensium Societas
