Get the channel or app to catch up on season. One new episodes of godfather of harlem sundays on epix. Now back to the story by fifteen twelve. The thirty six year old cardinal giovanni de medici was a highly regarded commander in the army of pope. Julius the second now with a contingent of troops borrowed from spain giovanni had the opportunity to use his position to his own and his family's advantage on august twenty ninth. Fifteen twelve cardinal de medici looked on through his monocle as his army descended on the florentine city of prato after breaching the city walls. The soldiers said about butchering soldiers and citizens alike. They murdered children and raped. Women frantic mothers through their daughters into wells and jumped in after them to escape the violence one italian ambassador who witnessed the event described the brutality in a letter to the duke of harare. He wrote these. Spaniards made such a massacre and butchery. The like of which. I have never seen all the streets. Houses and churches themselves were full of the dead and all of the women have fled to some monasteries and churches. Where the most miserable laments and pleased that it is possible could be heard. The whole place is put to the sack. Some reports said that the soldiers entered a convent where a number of people had sought refuge raping and torturing the nuns as well as the laywomen one story has it that giovanni domenici aided and attempt to barricade the doors of the convent and protect the people from his own soldiers. But even if this was true giovani's words suggested that he was not all that perturbed about the savagery inflicted on the town. He wrote to pope. Julius the second. The town was sacked. Not without some bloodshed. Such as could not be avoided the capture of proto so speedily and cruelly although it has given me pain will at least have the good effect of serving as an example and a deterrent to others. The bloodshed that could not be avoided amounted to several thousand dead. A majority of the city's population it was one of the worst civilian massacres in the history of italy but as giovanni predicted the attack did serve as a deterrent to his enemies. After hearing about the sack of prato the acting leader of florence fled by cover of night two days later giovanni marched triumphantly into the city of florence home again for the first time in eighteen years after spending half his life in exile giovanni was determined not only to return but to reestablish medici rule as the lords of the province met in the palace to discuss how to reconstitute the government. The cardinal arrived outside with hundreds of spanish troops at his side. The message was clear and the debate fell off abruptly. Giovani's younger brother. Giuliano was pronounced the head of a new republic and several dozen medici. Latkes were given seats. On the city council. The medici were once again the leaders of florence. But now that giovanni de medici had reclaimed his family's former glory. He needed a new goal. A bigger one. In fact he decided to aim straight for the top the papacy itself and as luck would have it. It wouldn't be long before the opportunity arose for him to try to claim it on february. Twenty first fifteen. Thirteen of julius. The second died in his sleep. The college of cardinals gathered for the third time that century to elect a new pontiff on march fourth. The cardinals locked themselves. Conclave vowing not to leave until a candidate was chosen. Cardinal de medici was not in rome when the meeting began. He was laid up in florence with a painful anal. Fistula when word of the conclave reached him. His attendance placed him in a litter and began a slow grueling journey to rome. Every jolt of the carriage was excruciating to the passenger. But he knew he had to be present for this conclave once they're giovanni had to be carried into the chamber still lying on his litter and attended by his doctor but if it seemed an inauspicious entrance. His poor health ended up working to his advantage reacting to the terrors of pope julius the seconds rain. The cardinals were looking for two primary traits in their next leader. They wanted someone who is the opposite of julius and who in addition wouldn't live long enough to do any serious damage to the church's reputation. They found both qualities in cardinal day. Medici he was well liked an affable and although he had proven himself in battle he did not seem quite as avid as julius to inflict suffering on the masses more importantly while giovanni was only thirty seven the grim look on the face of his doctor told the cardinals he might not be long for this world. After about a week of debate and multiple rounds of voting. A window finally opened on the building. One of the cardinals. No doubt glad to get a breath of fresh air after a week in the stinking chamber stuck his head out to address..

Giovanni de medici enjoyed a rise in the catholic church courtesy of his father's influence. He became a cardinal at thirteen the youngest in history but there was still much for him to learn about how the church really operated in march fourteen ninety two the sixteen year old cardinals set foot in rome for the first time in the midst of a rainstorm. It was a bleak picture of the city. His had denounced as that sink of all iniquity lorenzo's concerns about the city where well-founded fifteenth century. Rome was a struggling city with no real industry. Merchants and a massive criminal underclass alike dependent on a flow of visitors to keep the city of float. The population numbered around forty thousand with around fifty thousand tourists. At any given time coming to see the crumbling remains of rome's former glory but rome was also the home of the papal throne and when innocent. The eighth died in july fourteen. Ninety two living just long enough to confirm giovani's cardinal ship. The young medici attended his first meeting of the college of cardinals to choose a successor. It would have been easy for him to let old feuds dictate his present decisions one of the key figures in the debate was cardinal raffaele. Riofrio who had been involved in the conspiracy to assassinate his father and uncle years earlier but giovanni saw has this and cited with re. Reo in his support of rodriguez borja. Though he was deeply suspicious of rodriguez borja he could see where the cards were falling in true machiavelli and fashion. He calculated that. Borgia would be the victor. So he aligned with him. He made his vote knowing full. Well what kind of man or monster they were. Electing after the result of the final vote came through giovanni allegedly said of the newly elected. Pope alexander the sixth now we are in the jaws of a ravening wolf but for the next few years at least the young cardinal would be more occupied with his family's fortunes than with the lurid exploits of the new pope with lorenzo the magnificent gone and piero the fool in charge of the medici affairs their position. Florence was more tenuous than ever and it wouldn't be long before the great medici clan faced a threat that piero could not meet in september of fourteen ninety four king charles. The eighth of france invaded italy. As we discussed in our last few episodes ambitious young monarch decided he would try to seize the kingdom of naples for himself he led a troop of thirty thousand soldiers on a long march through the land. It was the largest force ever to invade italy twice the size of the army. Hannibal at brought their sixteen centuries earlier on top of its size. Charles's forces were filled with soldiers hardened by brutal battle in the north where warfare was not as polite and tactical as it was near the mediterranean at the head of the charge. Were the swiss guard legendary for their ability to break up lines of cavalry and decimate opposing forces after traipsing through milan and other parts of northern italy with little resistance. Charles met piero and his men at the outskirts of the florentine territory. He expected negotiation. And if that failed a battle that he would almost surely win. What he didn't expect was that the son of lorenzo the magnificent would fold like a piece of parchment capitulating to all the king's demands and asking nothing in return by the end of their meeting. Piero had agreed to give charles a massive loan of two hundred thousand ducats a sum equivalent to several hundred million dollars today for the privilege of leading the french. Brigades set up shop in florence to top off the indignity. While they're charles's soldiers spread newly introduced disease syphilis. When news of piero's pathetic parley made its way back to florence. The magistrates of the city were incensed. They summoned the citizens to piazza seniora. The city's main square where they called for the ouster of the medici family and for a new ruler to be installed giovanni had by this time returned from rome to support his brother and protect the status of the family while his fortunes lay more and more in rome. Florence was still his ancestral home and the seat of the lifestyle and culture. He cherished giovanni tried to get pierrot to defend his actions to the public but his brother was despondent. So the nineteen year old cardinal road out onto the streets himself shouting the medici rallying cry palais pa lay parlay a somewhat unlikely phrase which means balls balls balls and refers to the five red balls and one blue on the medici coat of arms but the people were not swayed by giovani's impassioned cries. They responded with the call. Popolo e liberta people and freedom and hurled rocks and garbage at the representatives of the medici. The gentry of the city declared that the medici were to be expelled from florence laying the groundwork for a new democratic government under christian preacher girolamo savonarola and his followers piero bitter and humiliated descended into debauchery. He settled in other parts of italy where he spent his evenings and a large part of his family's fortune on alcohol gambling and women giovanni on the other hand spent his exile looking for an opportunity to improve his prospects. He had no desire to return to rome and get caught in the middle of the simmering feud between alexander the sixth and his rival cardinal delray. So he set out discreetly on the road. Traveling around europe with his cousin giulio.

"The odor was suffocating. Sweat mixed with torch smoke and waste filled latrines. The windows of the chamber were boarded over and the door only opened once a day when a servant brought in a meal there was nowhere to bathe and none of the twenty five men assembled had brought a change of clothes they were there to elect a new pope and all of the members of the college of cardinals were committed to stewing in the building until they reached a unanimous vote but the foulest smell in the room. Wasn't there sweat or even their feces. It emanated from the backside of thirty seven year old. Cardinal named giovanni dei medici along with stomach ulcer giovanni suffered from an anal fistula a painful infection in the lining of his rectum. In spite of his illness. He had made an excruciating trip to rome lying. On a portable bed to mitigate the terror in his bowels he was determined to see and if possible to influence the outcome of the proceedings and so he sweated in the fetid air with the rest of them. The smell was so bad that the doctor who had operated on giovani's obsess begged to be allowed to step outside but his request was denied. No one was getting out nod until a decision was made. Finally after about a week of debate around voting concluded giovanni had the responsibility of counting the latest set of ballots. His eyes widened as he read. The tally the vote was unanimous. And the name he saw was his own. Giovanni dei medici had won the election and in doing so had fulfilled a generations long plan to fortify his family's wealth and status as cardinal giovanni de medici had been the head of a prominent but embattled dynasty as pope leo the tenth he would bend the.
