Quite the guy. I love his pictures.

The scourge of the popes. Wow, did they detest HIM. Thought he was the antiChrist. He was excommunicated and died as such.

A very lucky man; a man with the Midas touch. Always in the right place at the right time.

Died young, at 57. Funny, can’t find out (easily) as to how he died.
