Show Summary Details


This chapter shows that Andreas Grunthler returned to Italy and took Olympia Fulvia Morata and her brother Emilio Morato with him to his hometown of Schweinfurt. It includes Letters Fifteen–Twenty telling her friends Johannes Sinapius, Lavinia della Rovere, Magdalena Orsini, and Caelius Secundus Curio, of her safe arrival in Germany on twelfth of June 1550. The chapter shows that Andreas, Olympia, and Emilio arrived safe in Germany and were generously taken in by Georg Hörmann, a counselor to the king, at whose house they had been staying for several days. The chapter also states that Lavinia della Rovere wrote to Morata. She had received earlier letters saying that Grunthler had left for Germany but not Morata's announcing her own safe arrival.
