Pope Julius’ ii papacy is marked by both active foreign policy, earning him the status of warrior pope, and also a humanist and patron of art. These ambitions can be seen in Julius’s first intricate design for his tomb. In this plan the tomb, situated in St. Peter’s Basilica, is huge and free standing.

This event brought about the catalyst for the social acceptance of the Gothic Revival; however this was initially seen as dissenting. Following the fire a committee met and decided that the new palace would be Gothic or Elizabethan in style and accepted designs from prolific architects and designers.
