--------------------

Cosimo II de' Medici (12 May 1590 – 28 February 1621) was Grand Duke of Tuscany from 1609 until 1621. He was the elder son of the then incumbent Grand Duke and Christina of Lorraine. He married Maria Magdalena of Austria, and had eight children.

For the most of his eleven year reign, he delegated the administration of Tuscany to his ministers. He is best remembered as the patron of Galileo Galilei, his childhood tutor. He died of tuberculosis in 1621.[1]

Cosimo de' Medici was the elder son of Ferdinando I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, and Christina of Lorraine. His father requisitioned a modern education for him: Galileo Galilei was Cosimo's tutor between 1605 and 1608. Ferdinando arranged for him to marry Archduchess Maria Magdalena of Austria, daughter of Arcduke Charles II, in 1608, together, they had eight children, among whom was Cosimo's eventual successor, an Archduchess of Inner Austria, a Duchess of Parma and two cardinals.

Ferdinando I died in 1609. Due to his precarious health, Cosimo did not actively participate in governing his realm. Just over a year after his accession, Galileo dedicated his Sidereus Nuncius, an astrological treatise, to the Grand Duke.[2] Additionally, Galileo christened the moons of Jupiter the "Medicean stars". He was eventually tried by the Roman Inquisition and allowed to spend the rest of his days in Tuscany.

The Grand Duke assiduously enlarged the navy. He died on 28 February 1621 from tuberculosis. He was succeeded by his elder son, Ferdinando. The child-Grand Duke's regency was bestowed upon Cosimo II's wife and mother, as per his wishes.

Maria Cristina (August 24, 1609 – August 9, 1632)

Im Herbst 1610 ernannte er seinen ehemaligen Lehrer Galileo Galilei zum Hofmathematiker und -philosophen und zum Ersten Mathematikprofessor in Pisa – ohne jede Lehrverpflichtung. Er bekam volle Freiheit, sich ganz der Forschung zu widmen. Cosimo wirkte später als Beschützer Galileis gegen die Inquisition.

Cosimo heiratete am 19. Oktober 1608 Maria Magdalena von Österreich, Tochter des Erzherzogs Karl. Das Paar hatte acht Kinder:

   * Margherita (* 31. Mai 1612; † 6. Februar 1679) ∞ 11. Oktober 1628 Odoardo I. Farnese Herzog von Parma (1612–1646)

   * Francesco (* 16. Oktober 1614; † 25. Juli 1634)
