Storyboard Text

  • "How can I take back the land those Condottieri took for themselves..?"
  • "Will you marry me, Beatrice?"
  • "YES!"
  • Filippo Maria Visconti, the ruler of Milan, wanted to take back the lands that rogue Condottieri conquered for themselves under his brother's reign.
  • "Soldiers! You must take back my land to earn high wages!"
  • "Yes sir!"
  • Filippo Maria had two plans in order to do this: the first was to marry Beatrice Lascaris, the widow of one of the Condottieri generals. He would gain her husband's land and her dowry.
  • "For Milan!"
  • "For Filippo Maria Visconti!"
  • However, Beatrice became nosy and Filippo Maria accused her of adultery and had her beheaded.
  • "Everything is as it should be."
  • His second plan was to hire Condottieri of his own. He was paranoid that they would take the land like before, so he paid high salaries, hired spies, and hired and fired them regularly.
  • And so, Filippo Maria's Condottieri began to fight to take back land for Milan. One general he hired was Francesco Sforza, who was known as "the best mercenary in Italy"!
  • His Condottieri was able to take back the land! And so, Filippo Maria Visconti was succesful in his quest to unite the original lands of Milan.
