Ferdinando Trastámara d'Aragona, of the branch of Naples, known to contemporaries especially with the name of Ferrandino (Naples, 26 June 1467 - Naples, 7 October 1496). Acclaimed "the first among all the Kings and Lords of the World" and universally praised for his excellent virtues was King of Naples for just under two years, from 23 January 1495 to 7 October 1496. Prince of Capua from birth until 25 January 1494 and Duke of Calabria from 25 January 1494 to 23 January 1495 as heir to the throne.

From February to July 1495, he was ousted by Charles VIII of France, lowered in Italy to claim the Angevin inheritance. He was the son of Alfonso II and Ippolita Maria Sforza, grandson of King Ferrante, holder of the throne of Jerusalem.[1]

"A man of true beauty, of indomitable courage, so that he seemed born for the struggle, and yet a lover of culture and music and, for the sweetness of the soul, very different from his father, he was sovereign actually loved by the people" (Nino Cortese).

"This prince full of enlightened piety tried to provide tranquility and well-being to his peoples, so much so that he aspired to be called more than king, father of his subjects" (Niccola Morelli).
