Also note that people called him Leonardo (not da Vinci) back then. Da Vinci means "of Vinci", so it would be somewhat like saying "What would [[{{Jesus}} Of Nazareth]] do?"

Leonardo spent time in Florence (where he got charged with sodomy, sparking centuries of speculation over whether or not he was gay [[note]] We can never know because of the passage of time. On the one hand, Da Vinci was a man known to be outside the mainstream of society, and Florence was place of general tolerance.[[/note]]), Milan and Rome, working for various wealthy patrons. He produced some of the most famous paintings history: ''The Last Supper'', ''Virgin of the Rocks'', and, most famous of all, ''Mona'' "what-is-she-smiling-at" ''Lisa'', considered to be either the most beautiful or the most kitschy work of art in history.

'''Leonardo di Ser Piero da Vinci''' (can we call him Leo?) was an Italian scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. Born in 1452 in Vinci, Italy (hence da Vinci, i.e. from Vinci). Leonardo apprenticed at the art studio of Verrocchio. According to one legend, when Leonardo and Verrocchio collaborated on a painting, Verrocchio found himself so outclassed by his apprentice that he abandoned art altogether.

Leo died in 1519. He ''probably'' was not an [[Franchise/StarTrek immortal]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} alien]]... or [[Series/DoctorWho friends with a Time Lord]]... or [[Literature/TheDaVinciCode a sacred feminine worshiping cryptologist]]... or an [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII ally of an order of assassins]]. And he was ''definitely'' not a [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles ninja turtle]]. Or an ancestor of [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Stewie Griffin]]. And we're decently sure he never [[Series/DavincisDemons traveled to South America in search of a magical book of knowledge.]]

Leo died in 1519. He was arguably the first real celebrity. He was famous across Europe, as famous as any king, priest or soldier, and celebrated for his art, his intelligence and his good looks. He was subject to gossip and myth in his own lifetime. You can well imagine how things get out of hand after his death. He's part of the trinity of JuliusBeethovenDaVinci and his life often serves as BiographyAClef. He ''probably'' was not an [[Franchise/StarTrek immortal]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} alien]]... or [[Series/DoctorWho friends with a Time Lord]]... or [[Literature/TheDaVinciCode a sacred feminine worshiping cryptologist]]... or an [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII ally of an order of assassins]].

* BiographyAClef: His paintings, his codes, his scientific research, those war machine blueprints, his great genius and who was "the Mona Lisa" anyway, have supplied speculation and fodder for multiple fictional representations over time.
