Valori was a pro-Imperial Florentine aristocrat who supported Pope Clement VII, Alessandro de' Medici, and the Medici family's claims to power in the struggles after the 1527 sack of Rome. In 1535, however, he left Florence to join the republican exiles. He was captured at the 1537 Battle of Montemurlo and soon after executed with his sons by Duke Cosimo I.
