Historical background



Alfonso II d'Este is the fifth Duke of Ferrara, Modena and Reggio, he reigns from 1559 to his death. It was at his death, without a direct heir, that Ferrara escaped the house of D'Este and fell into the purse of the Holy See. His successors then fall back on Modena, Reggio Emilia and Carpi, possessions guaranteed to them by the Empire..
