Comments: Montferrato's early history is much like that of Lombardia or Asti from Roman times virtually unto the present. Elevated to the status of Marquisate in the 10th century, the Marquisal house has managed quite well over the ages. The present Marquis, Teodoro , is the direct descendant, through his mother, of the original holders of the property. Montferrato is under the religious authority of the Archbishop of Milan. There is a little commerce, but otherwise the province is overwhelmingly agricultural.
