Giuliano di Lorenzo de' Medici

Giuliano de' Medici (1479 - 1516), Duke of Nemours, youngest son of Lorenzo the Magnificent.

His tomb in the Medici chapel in the Church of San Lorenzo is ornamented with the Night and Day of Michelangelo, along with a statue of Giuliano by Michaelangelo. Due to the identical name he shares with his uncle (they are both Giuliano de' Medici), whose tomb is also in the Medici chapel, this tomb is often mistaken for that of his uncle.
