Cosimo de Medici
Head of the Medici Bank, richest man in Europe, and leader of the Order of the Blue Rose.
Cosimo has just taken over the leadership of the family bank. Despite coming from a non-noble family, he is one of the richest men in Europe. However he lives simply and his generosity makes him quite popular with the average people of Florence. It doesn’t make him all that popular with the Florentine aristocracy, led by the Albizzi family. But Cosimo has ambition to reform Florence, and to that end he has created the Order of the Blue Rose.
