Sergius VI (died 1097 or 1107) was the Duke of Naples from 1077 or 1082 to his death. He was the son of the senator John, and thus nephew and successor of John's elder brother Sergius V. His reign is very obscure on the basis of slight documentary evidence. In the face of the Norman conquests he reinforced the Neapolitan relationship with the Byzantine Empire and was at some point granted the Byzantine title of protosebastos.[1] He married Limpiasa, daughter of Richard I of Capua and Fredesenda of Hauteville. He was succeeded by his son John VI.
