Originally published in London by R. Hale in 1975. This edition published by Dorset Press, a division of Marboro Books Corporation, by arrangement with Bantam Doubleday Dell.

Among the families who light up the course of history none shines with greater brilliance than the Medici. Bankers, soldiers, popes, sovereigns, despots, patrons of art and learning --- by any measure they were remarkable and in some ways their achievements have never been equaled by the members of any other ruling house.

James Cleugh sifts through the legend, the half-truth and prejudice that surround the Medici name to arrive at the facts of a family who governed Florence for three hundred years and whose legacy has haunted, and sometimes ennobled, the mind of man for centuries.

Includes bibliography and index.
