Bianca Maria Sforza, engraving



Bianca Maria Sforza, b. Milan (Italy), April 5, 1472, d. Innsbruck (Tyrol), Dec. 31, 1510, daughter of Galeazzo Maria Sforza of Milan, 1493 second wife of Emperor Maximilian I, who because of her allegedly extravagant tastes and wastefulness, treated her extremely badly. Maximilian I used her generous dowry for military campaigns. In 1499 during the war against the Swiss, she raised an army in her husband´s name in Tyrol; intervened in favour of her uncle Ludovico, which led to her being exiled from Augsburg by Maximilian in 1500 along with her supporters, later lived in Innsbruck.
