Which of the following does not accurately describe the Medicis? A. They thought a monarchy was the best form of government. B. They were the most powerful family in Florence. C. They were patrons of the arts and learning. D. They owned the most powerful banks in Europe.
The correct answer is A. They thought a monarchy was the best form of government. They were a part of the wealthy class and weren't related to monarchy. They were merchants and bankers and were indeed the richest in Florence. Their influence often made decisions in the city, but they were nothing like kings or queens or anything similar.
