participated as Bishop of Tusculum (Frascati) in the Conclave of 1559, an event that lasted nearly four months. It was notorious for the extreme laxity of security.

He chose to be called Pius IV.
According to recent scholarship, the painting was first owned by
, and housed at the Palazzo Pisani in Montagnana, a building designed by Palladio. The canvas was probably moved to Venice after 1629, when the Pisani family purchased a palace on the Grand Canal. It was so esteemed that in 1664 agents of Christina, Queen of Sweden attempted to negotiate its purchase with the Venetian ambassador to Rome. The asking price of 5,000 ducats was considered excessive, and effectively discouraged all prospective buyers. As a result, copies of the painting were in demand, one of which was valued by its owner at 80 ducats.
It was designed by Andrea Palladio about 1552, for Cardinal
. Pisani was also a patron of the painters Paolo Veronese and Giambattista Maganza and the sculptor Alessandro Vittoria, who provided sculptures of the "Four Seasons" for the villa, which is in fact provided with fireplaces to dispel winter chill. Unlike more typical Palladian villas — and their imitations in Britain, Germany and the United States — the Villa Pisani at Montagnana combines an urban front, ("illustration") facing a piazza of the "comune", and, on the other side, a rural frontage extending into gardens, with an agricultural setting beyond.
When his uncle, Cardinal
, who had been Bishop of Padua since 1524, resigned the See on 2 December 1527, he did so in favor of his nephew Luigi. At his tender age, Luigi was too young to be a bishop (the minimum canonical age being twenty-five), and thus the diocese needed an Administrator, who turned out to be his uncle the Cardinal. The Cardinal, therefore, was able to pursue his activities at the Papal Court (which was in exile at the time) and still collect a share of the revenues of the diocese and control over the awarding of benefices. This arrangement continued until 1555. He succeeded as Administrator of the diocese of Padua in 1555, on the resignation of his uncle, Cardinal
, who had been promoted Bishop of Albano by the new Pope, Paul IV (Carafa). There is no reference to Luigi's taking holy orders or being consecrated a bishop, but his succession to the Diocese in 1555 may have forced the issue.
(1494 – 28 June 1570) was an Italian Cardinal, born in Venice, the son of Alvise Pisani the noted banker, who was Procurator of S. Mark's, a member of the Council of Ten, and a Councilor of the Doge of Venice; and Cecilia Giustinian. He had a brother named Giovanni (Zuan), who also became Procurator of S. Marks' and was a Venetian diplomat; he was married to the sister of Doge Andrea Gritti. He was a strong supporter of the alliance between Venice, France and the Papacy, called the League of Cognac. He shared the imprisonment of Pope Clement VII in the Castel S. Angelo during the Sack of Rome and its aftermath. He spent eighteen months in exile in Naples while Clement made his peace with the Emperor Charles V.
While honoring the spirit of the story, Veronese took liberties with his interpretation of the narrative, which in the painting occurs in a palatial hall, not a tent. The splendid wardrobe is that of the Venice in which Veronese lived, rather than ancient Greece or the Far East. It has long been supposed that Veronese inserted portraits of his contemporaries into the painting, as was customary in Venetian history painting. While it has been suggested that the figures were modeled after members of the Pisani family, for whose estate the picture was made, it has alternatively been proposed that the kneeling girls are Veronese's daughters, and the courtier who presents them is the artist's self-portrait. Another interpretation has Veronese appearing in the form of the man standing behind Alexander, while it has been suggested that it is the patron
who presents the family to Alexander. Recently art historian Nicholas Penny has written that the painting's characterizations of cultivated nobility were based on no particular models, and were products of the artist's imagination.
With the Viceroy of Naples, Lannoy, trapped in Siena (and the Prince of Orange unwilling to have him in Rome), the Cardinal assumed control of the city of Rome, as much as anyone could, while his personal enemy, pope Clement VII, was a prisoner in Castel Sant'Angelo. The victorious Imperial party made La Motte the Governor of the City of Rome and Philibert of Orange the head of the army. A council was appointed, including Bemelberg (Frundberg's successor), the Abbot of Nagera (Fernando Marin, Commissary General of the Imperial Armies in Italy), Giovanni Battista Lodron, Juan de Urbina, Cardinal Pompeo Colonna, Vespasiano Colonna (Prospero's son), Girolamo Morone (the Sforza agent), Mercurino Gattinara (the Emperor's Grand Chancellor), and others. On 11 May 1527 it was reported to the Marchese of Mantua that Cardinal Colonna was going to be restored to all of his dignities and benefices, as soon as the Pope could arrange a Consistory. This was an explicit part of the treaty which was being worked out between the Emperor and the Pope Early in June it was reported that Cardinal Colonna was ill with 'the flux' (dysentery? typhoid fever?) or the "peste", and even that he was dead. More accurately, the Secretary Perez wrote to the Emperor on 30 May that Colonna had been ill for four or five days with a fever, but that he was recovering. On 5 June it was reported by Cardinal
that Cardinal Colonna had come to the Castel S. Angelo to kiss the hand of the Pope, despite the fact that the Pope was unwilling.
