So I was reading the description of this game and the theme sounded familiar to me.

I am by no means an expert on history but as it turns out Lorenzo de' Medici, also known as Lorenzo the Magnificent (Lorenzo il Magnifico), is the grandson of Cosimo de' Medici. Cosimo de' Medici was known as The Elder (Il Vecchio).

Interestingly enough, even though these games (linked to above) play quite differently they both involve "sending out family members" to perform certain tasks.

Awful though, to have been saddled with the name "The Magnificent". Poor Lorenzo must've been bullied something rotten at school.

Worse still, he produced a son, Piero the Unfortunate.
