Maria Salviati (July 17, 1499 – December 29, 1543) was an Italian noblewoman, the daughter of Lucrezia di Lorenzo de' Medici and Jacopo Salviati. She married Giovanni dalle Bande Nere and was the mother of Cosimo I de Medici. Her husband died November 30, 1526, leaving her a widow at the age of 27. Salviati never remarried; after her husband's death she adopted the somber garb of a novice, which is how she is remembered today as numerous late portraits show her attired in black and white.
This is Lorenzo de Medici. The Medici family was an influential and very powerful family who paid for the Italian Renaissance. They were the Catholic Church's first bank, were patrons to many artists, and liked political power.
