  • Title: Malatesta/Paleologhi Un'Alleanza Dinastica per Rifondare Bisanzio nel Quindicesimo Secolo [the last Byzantine dynasty, the Palaiologi, spread a network of dynastic marriages across Europe; when Thomas Palaiologos fled to Italy, he was received not only by Pope Pius II but by the Malatesta and the Gonzaga, to whom he was connected through his brother Theodore's wife, Cleopa Malatesta; Thomas also married a daughter, Zoe, to Ivan III, Prince of Moscow; this marriage benefited Moscow which began to claim to be the third Rome in the place of the Papacy].
