  Eleonora d'Arborea and her "Carta de Logu"
 
Among the most rappresentative characters of Sardinian history, there is the female figure of Eleonora d'Arborea, mithical governor who inspired for ages numerous legends on her life and her conduct, for that she has been compared with the french Jeanne d'Arc. Married with the genoese Brancaleone Doria, she was the governor of Arborea "Giudicato" from 1383 till her death in 1404. She opposed all her forces to Aragonese powers, which aimed to occupied the island, and she was the promoter of different alliances and claims for the indipendence of Sardinia. But her fame is linked to the the law-code she had promulgated in the 1395 an called "Carta de Logu", written in sardinian language, and extended after to all Sardinia. This code rappresent one of the most civilized medieval juridical science.
