The Este family, having owned land throughout north and central Italy from the 10th century, established their residence at Este in the Padovano in the second half of the 12th century. The family took over the interests of the Adelardi in Ferrara on the extinction of the latter. They acquired Modena and Reggio in Emilia. By 1500, its lands in Este itself had been surrendered to Venice. 1
