Trudy Gold
The House of Nasi

Sunday 5.05.2024


The story of Doña Garcia and her nephew and son-in-law, Joseph Nasi, the Duke of Naxos, epitomises the stuff of dreams. As Conversos and subsequent exiles from Spain, these two wealthy, scholarly figures became great champions of the Jewish people. Embraced by the Ottoman court, Joseph served as an advisor to the Sultan and ascended to the titles of Lord of Tiberius and Duke of Naxos.
