Mona Lisa- Who she really was

Leonardo da Vinci was an artist and engineer who is best known for his painting the Mona Lisa . The Thing is that Mona Lisa Was not the name of a woman .  So who was the woman in the painting?

Some believe it was his mother while others believe it was the princess Isabella of Naples. But the answer came out a 500 hundred year old note which was found by a German archaeologist. The note was written by Da Vinci’s friend and it  had a line in it which said that the artist was working on a painting on Lisa del Giocondo.

Who was Lisa del Giocondo?

Lisa del Giocondo was an Italian noblewoman and member of the family of Florence and Tuscany . It is said that Lisa’s Husband asked Da Vinci to make a portrait of her. Once the portrait was made due to  the death of Lisa and her husband because of the plague Da Vinci was not able to give the portrait to Lisa’s husband. After a long time the Painting was bought by the king of France
