This magnet pictures Pope Julius II (1443-1513).  Giuliano della Rovere's papacy ran from 1503 to 1513.  Though a vigorous militarist, during that decade, Julius began the 120-year construction of St. Peters Basilica and contracted with Michelangelo for the 12,000 square foot ceiling painting in the Sistine Chapel 1508-12.  The Chapel had been constructed by Julius' uncle, Pope Sixtus IV.  Julius was also a patron of Raphael, who was engaged to paint the Pope's private rooms in the Vatican.

It was Julius II who granted a dispensation in 1509 permitting Henry Tudor to marry his brother's widow, Katherine of Aragon, days before Henry was crowned King of England.
