two branches: the elder branch is known as the House of Welf-Este
or House of Welf, and the younger branch as the House of
Fulc-Este or later simply as the House of Este.
d’Este was eager to have Leonardo da Vinci do a portrait of
her. The drawing above (probably sketched in Mantua in 1500) is
probably a study for that portrait. It is thought that Leonardo
lost interest in the project and avoided her as much as possible.
She spent the next four years insisting, offering commissions,
and begging, but it is almost certain that the project was never
elder branch of the House of Este, the House of Welf, produced
dukes of Bavaria (1070–1139, 1156–1180), dukes of
Saxony (1138–1139, 1142–1180), a German king
(1198–1218), dukes and electors of Brunswick and Lüneburg
(1208–1918), kings of Hanover (1815–1866), and
monarchs of the United Kingdom (1714–1901).
younger branch of the House of Este included rulers of Ferrara
(1240–1597), and Modena and Reggio (1288–1796).
del Este is an upscale resort on the southern tip of Uruguay,
southeast of Maldonado and about 140 km east of Montevideo.
Although the town has a year-round population of about 7,300, the
summer tourist boom often boosts the population by an extra
first Europeans to set foot in what is now Punta del Este were
the Spanish at the beginning of the 16th century. However, the
colonization of the area actually began around Maldonado at the
end of the 18th century due to Portuguese expansionism. Punta del
Este and its surroundings (Maldonado and Punta Ballena for
example) at the end of the 19th century were kilometers of sand
and dunes, but in 1896 Antonio Lussich bought 4,447 acres of
uninhabited land and there he started a botanic garden and
planted trees and plants from all over the world.
the trees started to spread on their own, and now the area is
full mostly of Pines, Eucalyptus, Acacias and various species of
bushes (Quite similar to Australian flora). Punta del Este hosted
a Latin American Summit in 1967 attended by U.S. President Lyndon
Johnson. In September 1986, Punta del Este played host to the
start of the Uruguay Round of international trade negotiations.
These negotiations ultimately led to the creation of the World
Trade Organization in 1994.
is a town and comune of the Province of Padua, in the Veneto
region of northern Italy. It is situated at the foot of the
Euganei Hills. The town is a centre for farming, crafts and
industry worthy of note.
the Iron Age Este was a major centre of the Veneti and later,
during the 2nd century BC, it became a Roman colony. In the Late
Antiquity, Este was wrecked by barbarian invasions and arose
again only after the 10th century, when Azzo II d'Este built a
castle there and named himself and his family after it.
House of Este held the city until 1240, when they moved their
capital to Ferrara. Este was conquered twice by Ezzelino da
Romano III, in 1238 and 1249, and disputed during the 14th
century by the Scaligeri, the Carraresi and the Visconti, until
it surrendered spontaneously to Venice in 1405.
the Republic of Venice, Este went through a period of economic
growth, interrupted only by the plague of 1630. After the fall of
the Republic and the Napoleonic Wars, the town, with the whole
Veneto region, became part of the Austrian Empire, until it was
annexed by the Kingdom of Italy as a consequence of the Third
Independence War of 1866.
