'''Richard II''' (died 1105/110606), called ''the Bald'', was the [[count of Aversa]] and the [[prince of Capua]] from 1090 or 1091. He was under the guardianship of Count [[Robert of Caiazzo]] until he came of age in 1093.
 
The eldest son and successor of [[Jordan I of Capua]] and [[Gaitelgrima, daughter of Guaimar IV|Gaitelgrima]], daughter of Prince [[Guaimar IV of Salerno]], he was named after his grandfather, [[Richard I of Capua]]. While digressing on this impressive lineage, the chronicler [[William of Apulia]] in his ''The Deeds of Robert Guiscard'' says that he "though now only a young man, already shows courage worthy of an adult."
