Cosimo II de Medici (by Justus Sustermans)


Grand Duke of Tuscany from 1609 until 1621. He was the elder son of the then incumbent Grand Duke and Christina of Lorraine. He married Maria Magdalena of Austria, and had eight children. For most of his eleven-year reign, he delegated the administration of Tuscany to his ministers. He is best remembered as the patron of Galileo Galilei, his childhood tutor. He died of tuberculosis on 28 February 1621.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Oroscopi e cannocchiali: Galileo, gli astrologi e la nuova scienza" by Andrea Albini (Avverbi, 2008), p. 68: "La data coincide con la nascita di Cosimo II: gli archivi della famiglia Medici registrano infatti che il granduca nacque 'alle ore 1 di notte del 12 maggio 1590, giorno di S. Neri Arcilei e fu battezzato dal Cardinale Alessandro de' Medici.'"

Translation: The date coincides with the birth of Cosimo II: the archives of the Medici family recorded that the Grand Duke was born "at one at night on 12 May 1590, the day of St. Nereus and Achilleus and was baptized by Cardinal Alessandro de Medici."
