* Florence has, from time to time, been ruled by a Prince who was also a Cardinal-Deacon.
This is similar to Henry, Cardinal King of Portugal who ruled from 1578 to 1580,
and Henry Cardinal Stuart, a claimant to the British throne.
The titular principality of Florence is now vested in the Patriarchate of St. Stephen.
