His widow and her child were invited to floreiice, and Francisco mariaivi I, andvlast duke of that State, had consent ed to this measure in the hope of saving his country hom the usurpation of the Pope, after his death. He was a most learned and virtuous prince, but the latter end of his life, though spent in solitude and the cultivation of learn ing, was rendered miserable by the base attempts of Urban VIII.
