Pier Paolo and Jacobello Dalle Masegna executed the funerary monument for Margherita Malatesta, the wife of Francesco Gonzaga. She died in 1399 and her monument was intended for the Gonzaga chapel in San Francesco, Mantua. All that remains today of her tomb is the marble arch and the reclining figure of Margherita, now housed in the Palazzo Ducale.
