Piero di Cosimo de' Medici (the Gouty), was the de facto ruler of Florence from 1464 to 1469, during the Italian Renaissance. He was the father of Lorenzo the Magnificent and Giuliano de' Medici. Piero was born in Florence, the son of Cosimo de' Medici the Elder and Contessina de' Bardi. In 1444 Piero married the wise, tolerant and cultured Lucrezia Tornabuoni (1425–1482), a link to the old Florentine nobility. All his family is probably portrayed in the famous painting by Botticelli, called “Madonna del Magnificat”, where Lucrezia Tornabuoni appears as the Virgin Mary.
