Commanders

The Battle of Anghiari was a conflict fought on 29 June 1440 between the forces of the cities of Milan and Florence. Cardinal Ludovico Trevisan commanded the Florentine force, but the condottiero Micheletto Attendolo led them in battle.

In comparison, the Milanese greatly outnumbered their Florentine opponent, and even added an additional 2,000 soldiers from a neighboring town, Sansepolcro, leading them to enter into battle with much superior numbers.

However, the Florentine force led by Micheletto Attendolo achieved a crucial victory, thanks in part to the actions of a young Mario Auditore, who had alerted Attendolo to a large dust cloud forming on the main road; the sign of an attempted surprise attack by Milanese forces.
