Pope Leo X (1475-1521) (Pope from 1513-1521) was the first of the four Medici popes. Son of Lorenzo the Magnificent, he was a great patron of the arts including artists like Raphael and MIchelangelo. His selling of indulgences led Martin Luther to post his 95 Thesis, sparking the Protestant Reformation. This famous portrait with Caridnal Giulio de' Medici (later Pope Clement VII) in the background was painted by Raphael.
Buffalo Bill Cody, born William Frederick Cody, was famous for performing in the Wild West shows popular in the 1870s. He toured Europe many times with his “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West” show and performed for Pope Leo XIII and Queen Victoria.
