RHM logo white type - The Royal House of Medici

At the heart of the cultural revolution called the Renaissance, for over 600 years the Medici dynastic legacy has been inextricably linked to the best of human achievement, to intellectual and philosophical enquiry across art and culture, international finance & diplomacy; to the very origins of modern democracy itself.

RHM renews this quest for noblesse oblige and what it means to be a “Renaissance Man” in the 21st century..

HRH Ottaviano de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany

Co-Founder & Honourary Chairman

The Medici Grand Ducal House of Tuscany bears its titles as a result of the Papal Bull on 27 August 1569 by Pope Pius V to Cosimo I and to all his firstborn male heirs, or closest male relative of the Medici family in perpetuity, in the event of extinction of the firstborn branch of Cosimo I.

Upon the extinction of the Grand Ducal branch, H.E.H. Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici, Grand Princess of Tuscany, decreed the Medici Ottajano line, direct descendants of Lorenzo “The Magnificent”, as successors.

Therein, in 2001, HRH Ottaviano de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, assumed his title per the decree by the Pope Pius V and per the dynastic rules of the family made in 1737 by the Grand Princess of Tuscany Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici, which still requires the Grand Duke to live in Florence.
