Today in History - July 5th. 1547 - Garzia de'Medici

de' Medici family really fascinates me, but this blogpost is one of their tragic
stories in History.

July 5th. 1547 marks the birth of Garzia de' Medici, son of Cosimo I de' Medici,
Grand Duke of Tuscany and Eleonora di Toledo.

In 1562 Garzia accompanied his parents and brothers at the Tuscan coast to
embark for Spain. 

Unfortunately during that trip the family contracted malaria. Garzia died on
December 6th. 1562.
