About Olimpia Aldobrandini

  • English - Wikipedia...
  • Olimpia Aldobrandini (20 April 1623 – 18 December 1681) was a member of the Aldobrandini family of Rome, and the sole heiress to the family fortune.


  • Aldobrandini was born 20 April 1623, the daughter of Giorgio Aldobrandini (Prince of Meldola, Sarsina and Rossano) and Ippolita Ludovisi (daughter of Orazio Ludovisi, sister of Niccolò Ludovisi and a niece of Pope Gregory XV).[1]
  • In 1638, she married Paolo Borghese of the Borghese family who died in 1646. The following year, in 1647, she married Camillo Pamphili[2] (son of Olimpia Maidalchini and nephew of Pope Innocent X) who renounced a cardinalate to become her husband.[3] Part of her dowry of her second marriage was a collection of paintings (including masterpieces removed from the Duke of Ferrara's "Camerino d’Alabastro"), villas in Montemagnanapoli and Frascati, the great Albodrandini estates in Romagna on the Corso in Rome and the Palazzo Aldobrandini.

These estates and property thus passed to the Pamphili family and became the nucleus for the Galleria Doria Pamphilj.

  • Aldobrandini and Camillo Pamphili had five children including Giovan Battista Pamphili, Benedetto Pamphili and Anna Pamphili who married the Genoese nobleman Giovanni Andrea III Doria Landi in 1671. When the Roman branch of the Pamphlili family ended in 1760, it was Anna and Giovanni who inherited the palazzo in Rome.
