He served under the French and in the Spanish forces of the Holy Roman Empire, before helping to re-establish the independence of the Republic of Genoa in 1528 under imperial protection. His campaigns in the Mediterranean included wars with the Ottoman Turks and the Barbary pirates. As a leading official from a powerful family, he had great wealth, two palaces, and the title of 'Liberator and Father of His Country'. Artwork published in 1873.
