A Norman County in southern Italy (the town is north of Naples), granted to the Norman leader Rainulf by Duke Sergius of Naples in 1030 and by the Emperor Conrad II in 1038.   It thus appeared earlier than the Hauteville County in Apulia, which later absorbed it.   Rainulf’s nephew, Richard, became Prince of Capua in 1058.
