LORENZO DE MEDICI

De Medici banking family grew in political power and became the de facto rulers of Florence in the 15th century, ending the democratic elements of the government.


Yet the family also did much good for the city. They were great patrons to the arts, hiring the legendary painters Botticelli and Michelangelo. They also spend a mindboggling amount of money on books and charity.
