Filippo Maria Visconti

Duke of Milan

Description:
Bio:

Ugly, cruel, and ambitious (also rumored to have murdered his first wife), Filippo rules the Duchy of Milan. An example of the excesses of Italian aristocracy, he invaded large areas of the Italian peninsula, including the territories belonging to Florence and Venice. Florence and Venice allied and were able to defeat the Milanese, ending that war in 1427. The war left Florence in debt, however. Visconti continues to eye his neighbors, and many fear it is only a matter of time before he attacks again.
