There is an interesting article about the woman who is supposed to be the Mona Lisa. It appears that she survived her husband and died at the age of 63. It also appears that she went into a convent after her husband’s death. I did not know those facts because some had specualated that her portrait had shown she had breast cancer – obviously the person who made that claim was wrong.
The article is about an archaeological dig at the convent where it was believed that the woman was buried.
