Descendants of Da Vinci, whose works of Vitruvian Man, The Last Supper, and Mona Lisa have reached even those who did not know him, within the scope of a recent study. still alive 14 people
It turned out to be . A similar study was conducted a few years ago. Let’s take a look at the differences and how people claimed to be descendants of Da Vinci lived.
The youngest of the da Vinci descendants is 1 year old, the oldest is 85 years old
This research was carried out by art historians Alessandro Vezzosi and Agnese Sabato. Da Vinci, who was never married and had no children in his lifetime. at least 22 half-brothers was located. The researchers also aimed to reconstruct Da Vinci’s lineage profile by tracing the Y chromosome inherited from fathers to sons in this family.
Vezzosi, this chromosome passed from fathers to sons for 25 years said it’s almost unchanged. In addition, he noted that 14 of Da Vinci’s descendants ranged in age from 1 to 85, and that they lived not exactly in Vinci, but rather elsewhere in the surrounding area.

Da Vinci in 2016 descendant there are 35 people a study was shared, but unlike here, those 35 people were descended from Da Vinci indirectly, not directly. For this reason, their DNA was not in a position to provide sufficient information.
In the continuation of the research, the DNA of these people will be examined and the Y chromosome they carry, to be compared with that of their ancestors. Let’s see if we can get new information about Leonardo Da Vinci when the research is completed. You can share your comments on the subject in the comment section.
