Lorenzo de' Medici, portrayed by Elliot Cowan, is a character in Starz's Da Vinci's Demons. He is an Italian statesman, the ruler of the Florentine Republic during the Italian Renaissance, and one of the most influential patrons of the arts in world history.


Lorenzo is a reluctant leader. Despite his coarse appearance, he is a shrewd and sober man. His love of the arts makes him far more suited to be a poet than a prince, but he was forced at a young age to become head of the Medici Bank, and thus the de facto ruler of Florence.

The Medici Bank is one of the most influential institutions in Europe. But its sovereignty is being challenged by competing banks. Lorenzo regards Rome and Pope Sixtus IV as necessary evils. [1]
