The House of Medici was a powerful family dynasty in Florence during the fourteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries. They made their money in banking, and although they were not monarchs, they held great political power. Their greatest legacy was their support of art and architecture during the Renaissance. As patrons they supported many important artists, including Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Brunelleschi and Botticelli.
