In 1228 the Count Ugolino de Gherardeschi and the Archbishop Ruggieri were competitors for the sovereignty of the city of Pisa. Ugolino was successful; but from a change in the popular favor was with his two sons and two grandsons, imprisoned in the tower of Pisa. Eventually the Pisans caused the key of their prison house to be thrown into the Arno, and all food to be withheld from them. And thus in a few days they all died of hunger. [P. 13.]
