The Soderini and the Medici

Sacramoro Mengozzi remained aware that Piero's death might cause any of them to try to unseat the young Lorenzo de' Medici. Sacramoro dismissed the idea that Tommaso would turn against Lorenzo, for although he possessed the intelligence to aspire to Piero's place, Tommaso lacked the popularity. Piero's death offered him the opportunity to make himself Lorenzo's mentor and thereby indirectly to exercise effective political power. The challenge to Lorenzo originated in issues of foreign policy, in particular in the serious and permanent antagonism that had developed between Florence's political allies, the Duke of Milan and King Ferrante of Naples.

Keywords:   King Ferrante, Duke of Milan, Piero de' Mecici, Lorenzo de' Medici, Sacramoro Mengozzi
