About Carlo Barberini, cardinale

Carlo Barberini was an Italian Catholic cardinal and member of the Barberini family. He was the grand-nephew of Maffeo Barberini, later Pope Urban VIII and son of Taddeo Barberini.

He was the son of Taddeo Barberini, Prince of Palestrina and Anna Colonna, daughter of Don Filippo I Colonna. He was the younger brother of Lucrezia Barberini and the older brother of Don Maffeo Barberini. He was the nephew of Taddeo's cardinal brothers, Francesco Barberini (Senior) and Antonio Barberini and was himself the uncle of Francesco Barberini (Junior), the son of his brother Maffeo.
