Nerio Acciaioli

Nerio Acciaioli

Nerio Acciaioli was the leader of Corinth and the offspring of a Florentine banking family. In 1385, he overtook the city of Athens and, in 1388, the Acropolis.

His policy in regards to the local residents could be characterized as benevolent in light of the fact that he allowed the Orthodox to practice their religion freely and gave two seats on the city council to Greeks as notaries.

The above actions greatly eased internal strife. As far as his foreign policy was concerned, he fortified his power through arranged marriages and alliances. He died in 1394.
