Lorenzo de' Medici was never an old man. He died in 1492 at the age of forty-three. He came to power in fifteenth-century Florence at the age of twenty. In the twenty-odd years of his rule, this banker, politician, international diplomat, free-wheeling poet and songwriter, and energetic revolutionary helped to give shape, tone, and tempo to that truly dazzling time of Western history, the Renaissance. This book, by award-winning author Charles L. Mee, Jr., recounts the remarkable life of Lorenzo de' Medici and of the times in which he lived.

A Renaissance Prince If you're a fan of the TV series on Leonardo da Vinci, you'll enjoy this book. Lorenzo was Leonardo's great patron and friend. I learned a lot I didn't know. The book does a good job describing Renaissance Italy and the people who made the era so incredible. I really enjoyed this book and will recommend it to my friends.
