Do you have sources links etc ? Where is the connection ? Aldobrandini comes from Aldebaran a Persian name for a Constellation ?..
The Aldobrandini are an Italian noble family from Florence, with close ties to the Vatican..The family also lends its name to the Palazzo Aldobrandini on the Quirinal Hill.

Aldebaran From Arabic الدبران (al-dabarān), meaning "the follower" (of the Pleiades)..Aldebaran is classified as a type K5III star close enough to the ecliptic to be occulted by the Moon.

In Persia it was known as Tascheter.

The Romans called it Palilicium..

In the Middle Ages it was sometimes called Cor Tauri (the Heart of the Bull/Taurus)..

In Chinese it is known as 畢宿五 (Bìxiùwŭ, the Fifth Star of the Net).

In Hindu astronomy it is identified as the lunar mansion Rohini ("the red one") and as one of the 27 daughters of Daksha and the wife of the god Chandra(moon)..After pleading to the lord Shiva the curse was held at bay and the moon was rejuvenated by shiva's grace for 15 days and desiccated for another 15 days thus waning and waxing to make a lunar month...

Antares (α Scorpii, α Sco, Alpha Scorpii) is a red supergiant star in the Milky Way Galaxy and the 16th brightest star in the nighttime sky. It is sometimes listed as 15th brightest, depending on how the 2 brighter components of the Capella quadruple star system are counted..Antares is a member of the Upper Scorpius subgroup of the Scorpius-Centaurus Association, which contains thousands of stars with mean age 11 million years at a distance of approximately 145 parsecs (470 light years)..15th Spirit in Order is Eligos, a Great Duke, and appeareth in the form of a goodly Knight, carrying a Lance, an Ensign, and a Serpent..He discovereth hidden things, and knoweth things to come; and of Wars, and how the Soldiers will or shall meet..He causeth the Love of Lords and Great Persons..He governeth 60 Legions of Spirits..

Antares is a supergiant star with a stellar classification of M1.5Iab-b.. It has a radius of approximately 883 times that of the Sun; if it were placed in the center of our solar system, its outer surface would lie between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter..Antares has a secondary, or companion star, Antares B, that changed from an angular separation (from its primary, Antares A) of 3.3 arcseconds in 1854 to 2.86 arcseconds in 1990.. Antares B can sometimes be observed with a small telescope for a few seconds during lunar occultations while Antares A is hidden by the Moon..Antares is one of the 4 first magnitude stars that lies within 5° of the ecliptic (like Spica, Regulus and Aldebaran) and therefore can be occulted by the Moon and though rarely, by Venus...

Antares, the proper name of this star, derives from the Ancient Greek Άντάρης, meaning "anti-Ares" ("anti-Mars"), due to the similarity of its reddish hue to the appearance of the planet Mars..The comparison of Antares with Mars may have originated with early Mesopotamian astronomers.. However, some scholars have speculated that the star may have been named after Antar, or Antarah ibn Shaddad, the Arab warrior-hero celebrated in the Golden Mu'allaqat..In ancient Mesopotamia, Antares may have been known by the following names: Urbat, Bilu-sha-ziri ("the Lord of the Seed"), Kak-shisa ("the Creator of Prosperity"), Dar Lugal ("The King"), Masu Sar ("the Hero and the King"), and Kakkab Bir ("the Vermilion Star")..The Māori people of New Zealand call Antares Rehua, and regard it as the chief of all the stars. Rehua is father of Puanga/Puaka (Rigel), an important star in the calculation of the Māori calendar..Alternative name of this star, meaning "the Heart of Scorpion"..In ancient Egypt, Antares represented the scorpion goddess Serket (and was the symbol of Isis in the pyramidal ceremonials)...'m a little man, I'm a little man, he's... he's a great man! I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas..Never get out of the boat." Absolutely goddamn right! Unless you were goin' all the way..Hey, man, you don't talk to the Colonel.. You listen to him. The man's enlarged my mind. He's a poet warrior in the classic sense..Are my methods unsound..I don see any method at all, sir..I expected someone like you..Are you an assassin?..
