Daughter of Prince Branciforte Barresi

Putative daughter of Prince Branciforte Barresi – a Sicilian arts patron and benefactor from the late 16th to early 17th centuries.

Three of the Prince’s daughters died as young children and their remains were buried in the same chapel as Prince Branciforte Barresi.

The mtDNA profiles of the three daughters were determined by DNA testing of their skeletal remains from the chapel of San Benedetto church of Militello di Catania (Sicily).
