NOTES

The legends of William I "The Malo" and the Gold Coins of the Zisa palace are part of the existing lore:
Guglielmo il Malo, Guglielmo il Buono e i Diavoli della Zisa
.

The first legend is about how King William I replaced all the golden coins of the city of Palermo with leather coins, thus amassing a huge treasure all for himself.
The second legends tells about a treasure of gold coins hidden in the Zisa palace, and guarded by an uncountable legion of devils painted on a magical fresco.
(William I died before the completion of Zisa palace, thus making the connection between his coins and the palace treasure uncertain).

In our comic, the legends are merged,
having the Al-Aziza stone as the actual treasure (which was used to created gold coins), while the fresco Devils were actually the monsters defeated by William II (or even the same William II, mistaken for an evil being while he was wearing his dark armour).

It can also be suggested that Willam II used the Al-Aziza stone to enrich the people in order to redeem his father's actions.
