I thought that a similar thread to the Ancient Biography Thread would be awesome. I believe that the Middle ages(my favorite era with Roman history) could benefit from more exposure.

So, this thread is dedicated to medieval figures, lets say from about 500 CE to 1530 CE, with the Italian Renaissance included(up to about 1500-1530).

Biographies on Cesare Borgia and Lorenzo de' Medici will be released this week(probably in the next 4-5 days).

I'm probably not well qualified to contribute, but this is an excellent idea Labienus and I look forward to this thread's future.

Looks like I'm not the only one playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. :)...unless that's just a coincidince
I never played that game, though my friend told me that it is awesome.

Nope, I am just a big fan of the Italian Renaissance.

How long do these biographies need to be? I would love to write one about Henry II, or Richard I of England, but I don't want to post something that is too short.
For the size of biographies, in the Ancient biography thread, most biographies are about 1000-1200 words so that should be good.

Without going to far of topic...I just bought a 360 with the Kinect and I bought both Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed II. I like Creed II better thus far :) I love the Renaissance setting!
