The Family Medici
- The Hidden History of the Medici Dynasty
- By: Mary Hollingsworth
- Narrated by: Anne Flosnik
- Length: 12 hrs and 53 mins
Having founded the bank that became the most powerful in Europe in the 15th century, the Medici gained massive political power in Florence, raising the city to a peak of cultural achievement and becoming its hereditary dukes. Mary Hollingsworth argues that the idea that the Medici were enlightened rulers of the Renaissance is a fiction that has now acquired the status of historical fact. In truth, the Medici were as devious and immoral as the Borgias - tyrants loathed in the city they illegally made their own.
Good story, bad narrator.
