Relations with Florence and the Activities of Tommaso Portinari

(p.120) Chapter Three Relations with Florence and the Activities of Tommaso Portinari
Charles the Bold and Italy (1467–1477)
Liverpool University Press

This chapter discusses Charles the Bold's relations with the republic of Florence — and with the successive heads of the city's de facto ruling family, the Medici, Piero (1464–1469) and his son Lorenzo (1469–1492) — which were different from those he maintained with the other major secular powers of Italy. It also examines the career of Tommaso Portinari, the manager of the Bruges bank during the reign of Charles the Bold, who was one of the most prominent of the many Italians who frequented his court, and, because Florence accredited no ambassador to Burgundy, occasionally served in a quasi-diplomatic capacity on behalf of the republic or of the Medici.
