Niccolò di Toldo

Niccolò di Toldo is famous for being the man whom Catherine stood by while he was executed and then she wrote her most famous letter, describing his execution to Raymond of Capua. Scholar Suzanne Noffke articulates that, “he had become associated with the court of Sienese senator Pietro Marchese del Monte Santa Maria - perhaps even as an agent of the Perugian papal vicar Gerard du Puy.”1
