The Soderini and the Medici

During the last years of Piero de' Medici's life, from 1466 to 1469, the careers of Niccolò and Tommaso Soderini demonstrated what the political winners and losers could expect in Medicean Florence. While Tommaso benefited from the reconfirmed authority of the inner circle and from Piero's unchallenged leadership of the regime to increase his political status, Niccolò's hopes of returning in triumph to Florence gradually disappeared. He saw his native city becoming increasingly subject to personal Medici rule, with citizens like his brother dominating the political scene.
