Francesco Sforza Duca di Milano: Uomo d'armi e cardinale. Tra i suoi condottieri militò (dal 1452 al 1453) Bartolomeo Colleoni (uno dei pochi capitani di ventura ad aver servito sia con i braccheschi che con gli sforzeschi) che diverrà poi il comandante generale della Serenissima, nonché uno dei suoi rivali più accesi, ma all'interno di un quadro di rapporti particolarmente "cavalleresco".

 

Charles I, duke of Burgundy: He was also called Charles the Bold. He was a man extraordinary brave, well educated, wise and smart. He loved music and tournaments.
