The Ubaldini were a noble family, which governed on the Mugello from the 7th century to 1373 (Ubaldini della Pila, Conti del Mugello).
Later, a collateral branch (Ubaldini della Carda, Counts of Apecchio) survived until their extinction in 1752.
Perhaps of Longobard origin, they built numerous castles and fortresses.
