Piero di Lorenzo de Medici


Italian nobleman, a member of the powerful Medici family, known as "Piero the Unfortunate," he was gran maestro of Florence from 1492 until his exile in 1494.

He was the eldest son of Lorenzo de' Medici (Lorenzo the Magnificent) and Clarice Orsini. He was raised alongside his younger brother Giovanni, who would go on to become Pope Leo X, and his cousin Giulio, who would later become Pope Clement VII.

He married the Tuscan noblewoman Alfonsina Orsini. They had two children, Lorenzo II, Duke of Urbino (1492-1519) and Clarice de' Medici (1493-1528) who married Filippo Strozzi the Younger.

Piero was accused of betraying the republic and forced to flee for his life. He was in exile when he drowned after a battle on 28 December 1503 in the Garigliano River, Italy.
