Fiesco, Luca

Fiesco, Luca an Italian prelate, was appointed in 1298 cardinal-deacon, with the title of St. Mary in Via Lata, by pope Boniiface VIII. Luca proved his gratitude September 9, 1303, by delivering Anagni from an insurrection. On January 6, 1309, he was at Aix-la-Chapelle, and assisted as legate-extraordinary of pope Clement V, in the coronation of the emperor Henry VII of Luxemburg. John XXII sent him as legate to England. Fiesco died in 1336, and was buried in the metropolitan church of Genoa. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
