Piero de' Medici (the Gouty) (1416 – December 2, 1469) (Italian: Piero "il Gottoso"), ruler of Florence from 1464 to 1469, during the Italian Renaissance, and father of Lorenzo de' Medici (the Magnificent).
Piero was warned by Giovanni Bentivoglio, and was able to escape the coup, in part because his son Lorenzo discovered a road-block set up by the conspirators to capture his father; he was not recognized, and was able to warn his father.
He died in 1469, due to gout and lung disease, and is buried in the Church of San Lorenzo, next to his brother Giovanni; their tombs are decorated with a statue by Verrocchio commissioned by his sons Lorenzo and Giuliano.
