Dante is best known for his Divine Comedy, originally called Comed├Ča and later called Divina by Boccaccio, is widely considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language.

Dante was born to Alaghiero or Alighiero di Bellincione & Bella, most likely a member of the Abati family. Dante claimed that his family descended from the ancient Romans (Inferno, XV, 76), but the earliest relative he could mention by name was Cacciaguida degli Elisei (Paradiso, XV, 135), born no earlier than about 1100.
