Roman Catholic Cardinal. Born in Naples to Michele de' Medici and Isabella Albertini, of the Princes of Cimitile, Francesco Medici di Ottaiano came from a Neapolitan patrician family who counted Pope Leo XI among its distinguished members. Receiving his education at the Pontifical Academy of Ecclesiastical Nobles between 1828 and 1831, he was appointed prefect of the Pontifical Household on January 28, 1842 and prefect of the Sacred Apostolic Palace on May 17, 1850. Pope Pius IX created him cardinal deacon in the consistory of June 16, 1856 with the deaconry of San Giorgio in Velabro. He passed away a few months later at the early age of forty eight, on October 11, 1857, in Rome. Exposed in the church of San Marcello, his body was buried in his deaconry.
