Grand Duchess of Tuscany Vittoria della Rovere (Portrait by Justus Sustermans)


Italian noblewoman, styled as Grand Duchess of Tuscany through her marriage to Grand Duke Ferdinando II. She had four children with her husband, two of whom would survive infancy: the future Cosimo III, Tuscany's longest-reigning monarch, and Francesco Maria, a prince of the Church. At the death of her grandfather Francesco Maria della Rovere, she inherited the Duchies of Rovere and Montefeltro, which reverted to her second son, Francesco Maria, at her death. She was later entrusted with the care of her three grandchildren. Vittoria della Rovere, Grand Duchess of Tuscany, died in Pisa on 5 March 1694 at the age of seventy-two. Her marriage brought a wealth of treasures to the House of Medici, which can today be seen in the Palazzo Pitti and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Sy Scholfield quotes from Per lettera: la scrittura epistolare femminile tra archivio e tipografia : secoli XV-XVII by Gabriella Zarri (Viella, 1999), page 448: "Nonostante le mal celate aspettative di un erede maschio il 7 febbraio 1622 « tra le 19 e le 20 ore » Claudia partorisce una bambina che quella sera stessa , in una camera del palazzo ducale , viene battezzata col nome di Vittoria dal vescovo."

Translation: Despite the ill-concealed expectations for a male heir, on 7 February 1622 "between 19 and 20 hours" Claudia gave birth to a girl, who that same evening, in a room of the ducal palace, was baptized with the name of Vittoria by the bishop.
