  • Notes 
    • Duke of Milan. One of the seventeen tyrants treated in Chaucer's The Monk's Tale.

      "[I]nvolved in constant warfare and intrigue, noted hunter, imposed high taxes on his dominions, fought Popes Innocent VI and Urban VI and the emperor Karl VI, left 17 legitimate and 20 bastard children upon his murder arranged by his nephew Duke Gian Galeazzo." [The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England (citation details below).]

      "In 1373, the pope sent two papal delegates to serve Bernabò and Galeazzo their excommunication papers (consisting of a parchment bearing a leaden seal rolled in a silken cord). Bernabò, infuriated, placed the two papal delegates under arrest and refused their release until they had eaten the parchment, seal, and silken cord which they had served him." [Wikipedia]
