English: The Duchy of Naples began as a Byzantine province that was constituted in the seventh century, in the reduced coastal lands that the Lombards had not conquered during their invasion of Italy in the sixth century. It was governed by a military commander (dux), and rapidly became a de facto independent state, lasting more than five centuries during the Early and High Middle Ages.
Italiano: Il Ducato di Napoli all'origine fu una provincia bizantina retta da un governatore militare (dux). Come in altri territori greci d'Italia, la nobiltà locale riuscì a rendere il ducato uno stato autonomo e a costituire ereditaria la carica di duca. Lo stato durò per oltre cinque secoli nell'alto Medioevo ed è noto anche con il nome di Ducato napoletano.
