== Persona History: ==
 
Caterina Giovanni, originally Caterina Moncada, was also born in 1524 in Sicilia. Although Caterina's family had been of Nobel decent, Sicilia was a colonial holding of Spain and brutally governed by a greedy upper-class during the 16th century. A decade prior to her birth her family was stripped of many of it's titles and most of it's estates. Wishing to escape the oppression of the Spanish, Caterina fled at age 20 to Rome. Eventually, meeting her Husband Orlando.  
 
<BR><BR>
 
Orlando Giovanni di' Gilead was born the son of a vineyard farmer in the Republic of Florence in the year 1524. The first 18 years of his life were somewhat uneventful but by 1542 most of the northern Italian states were being threatened by the British, Spanish and French bids to control Lombardy, Venice and most of the northern peninsula. In 1543 at the age of 19 Orlando joined the Spanish Imperial forces to repel the French under the Italian commander Prince Ferdinando Sanseverino. He saw his first action in the Battle of Ceresole, helping successfully repel the French before reaching Lombardi.

Later, Orlando returned to Florence, now the capital city of the Dutchy of Tuscany. Having no interest in vineyards or farming, Orlando traveled to Rome. In Rome, Orlando sought and found a mentor in Maestro Camillo Agrippa, a master of both the sword and the sciences. In Rome, he also met his soon to be wife, Lady Caterina.

Angelina Francesca de Nardi

There is not one story of HE Caterina Giovanni di Gilead but many. I can not single one out. For to me she is Mamma Cat, my SCA mom. Caterina welcomed me into her family early on and I have been one of her "daughters" for over 4 years. She is funny, kind, generous, and knows to always hand me a glass of wine. Caterina is one who has inspired me to have "helium hand" as she is always hard at work. Setting up or tearing down at an event, feastocrat, autocrat, she is ALWAYS doing something. She is one of the most amazing and beautiful people I know inside and out

Kyna Terricsdottir

While at Gulf Wars one year, Caterina Giovanni di Gilead thought that playing in mud puddles would be a GREAT IDEA! So much fun, in fact, that she convinced others to join her. SOON, there were 10 people jumping in the mud. Then, 20, 50, 100 people covered in mud, now in need of a shower! Where was Caterina though... She had already made off to Namron camp, to the shower.

Kolfinna Egilsdóttir

I can confirm Kyna's story. Caterina is always a little muddy. And for the record, I have never chased Cat with a broken glow stick. Vicious rumor!
She is also one of the hardest working people in the SCA who I know. Her hand is permanently fixed in the "up" position.

Ophelia Warde

Caterina “Cat”-The SCA’s version of Superwoman! She does everything from feeding everyone to doing the dishes! She’s beautiful, talented, feisty, and super kind!
