Medici Agent

Description: The Medici are the leading family in the rich and cultured city of Florence and are leaders in introducing new forms of accounting and providing finance to the powerful across Europe. While money is a key pillar of political influence in Europe, the Medici also actively court popular support to bolster their position. Lavish parties, endowments to the arts, new churches, generosity to the poor and stirring oratory are all employed to build Medici support at home and abroad. A Medici Agent works to bolster their financial wealth and further the Medici political intrigues.
