LEONARDO DA VINCI BIO
Characters - The Borgias Fan Wiki
Leonardo da Vinci was the illegitimate son of a notary and a peasant woman, and was born in Vinci, Italy (near Florence). He was an engineer, a painter, a musician, a geologist, an anatomist, a scientist, a mathematician, acartographist, a botanist, a writer, an inventor, a sculptor, and an architect. He is often described as thearchetypal"RenascenceMan".

In his younger years he was an apprentice to the artist Andrea di Cione, most commonly known as Verrocchio. He was reportedly so much better than his master at painting that once while working on a piece together Verrocchio noticed how much better his pupil was at his craft that he supposedly "put down his brush and never painted again".

Da Vinci was once accused of ****** along with 3 other young men, who were reportedly caught with a known male prostitute. There was not enough evidence to convict them and the case was dropped. His sexual orientation has been the cause of much debate. During this time da Vinci did not produce any work.


He is most known for his paintings (namely the Mona Lisa, the Virutian Man, and The Last Supper), but he was a man of many talents. He designed a number of ingenious inventions, such as the first tank prototype, a canon run by vapour, and the scissors. He also did extensive anatomy studies, He is most often known for the patronage of the Medici family, but he was patronaged by other famous individuals of the time as well, including Francesco Sforza and Cesare Borgia.
