Gian Galeazzo Maria Sforza (1469-1494) | WikiTree FREE Family Tree
GianGaleazzoSforza (also Giovan GaleazzoSforza) (20 June 1469 - 21 October 1494) was the sixth Duke of Milan.
Born in Abbiategrasso, he was only 7 years old when in 1476 his father, Galeazzo Maria Sforza, was assassinated and GianGaleazzo became the Duke of Milan. His uncle, Ludovico Sforza, acted as regent to the young duke but quickly wrestled all power from him and became the de facto ruler of Milan for some time. In 1488, GianGaleazzo married his cousin princess Isabella of Naples and they had three children together: Ippolita Maria Sforza (1490-1501), Francesco (1491-1512), Bona (1494-1557) (who married Sigismund I of Poland) and Bianca Maria (1495-1496).

Nor was there anyone who doubted that if it had been poison, it had been administered through his uncle's Ludovico Sforza machinations...
