Mary Hollingsworth


The Medici

In truth, the Medici were as devious and immoral as the infamous Borgias, tyrants loathed in the city they illegally made their own and which they beggared in their lust for power. This book explodes our gilded image of the Medici to reveal the sordid tale behind their astonishing trajectory from moneylending to the cream of Europe's nobility.

Mary Hollingsworth is a British author and has published widely on Renaissance Europe, dealing with topics from art to everyday life.
