    (1522-December 17, 1562)
    Born in Toledo, Spain
    Died in Pisa, Italy
    Birth name was Eleonor Alvarez de Toledo
    Wife of Grand Duke Cosimo I
    Mother of Isabella
    Duchess of Florence
    Her father Don Pedro Alvarz de Toledo commanded a huge dowry because of the Medicis newly-acquired royal status and their desire for 'blue blood.'
    Her nuptials were also political, tying Florence to Spain.
    She bore 11 children.
    She employed close to a dozen silver and gold weavers to create her lavish wardrobe.
    She acquired a gambling habit.
    She was a noted beauty.
    She remained loyal to Cosimo despite his infidelities.
    She proved charitable to the less fortunate.
    While heavily pregnant and watching a performance, she laughed heartily when an actor was disrobed, flashing a big fake penis.
    At 40, she succumbed to malaria with 2 of her teenaged sons.
