A legal document relating to the appointment of a procurator in connection with a voyage, hardly legible beyond the title of Fregoso: "Messieur Galleasse Fregoso gentilhomme Italien chev[alier] de l'ordre du roy et gentilh[omm]e ordi[air]e de sa chambre [...] de Venise faict constituer son procu[reu]r [...]". - Galeas Fregoso was a member of the important Genovese noble family that produced several doges, cardinals, and condottiere. He is first documented as one of the Italian noblemen accompanying Renée de France (1510-74) on her return from Ferrara to France.
