Ilaria del Carretto

On February 3rd 1403 Ilaria del Carretto of the Marchesi of Savona married Paolo Guinigi, lord of Lucca. Just two years later Ilaria died and Paolo commissioned Jacopo della Quercia to make a funerary monument which would testify both his love for Ilaria and also the magnificence of the Giunigi family.
