Giulio Ive pronounced our last name the same way you are telling me all my life. The Spanish Way (or Italian if you wish :-) ) but here in the US every body is always trying to pronounce it like "Mary" even the priest, after 7 sessions, married my wife with somebody called Eric "Mary" for the enjoyment of the family. By the way do you or anybody that is reading this can send me The Coat of arms from the Mari Family and the history
I know that this part is going to be hard because everybody's forefathers in this forum comes from a different country :-) (Im from Cuba with roots in Canary Islands, Spain) and every story is different, but it would be interesting to put it together.
About the kingdom
