Cosimo de’Medici’s marriage to Eleonora of Toledo (1522–1562), only daughter of Don Pedro de Toledo, Marqués de Villafranca and Viceroy of Naples, brought him much of the wealth and influence which helped make him Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1569. The couple had eight children. The portrait in The Wallace Collection derives from Bronzino’s masterly portrait of Eleonora of Toledo with her Son Francesco (1545; Florence, Uffizi), in which the sumptuous brocaded dress merits as much attention as the sitter herself.
