Galante (pedigree)

Galante was a Jewish family which flourished at the beginning of the 16th century in Rome, and the head of which, Mordecai, was a Spanish exile of the Angel family. His courteous manners won for him from the Roman nobles the surname "Galantuomo" (gentleman), a name which the family retained. About this time the family settled in Palestine, where it produced authors and other celebrities, among them the following:
* Abraham ben Mordecai Galante
* Mordecai Galante
* Moses Galante (the Elder)
* Moses Galante (the Younger)
* Moses Galante
