Lisa del Giocondo, née Gherardini (15 June, 147915 July, 1542 or c. 1551), better known as Mona Lisa (archaic Italian for Lady Lisa) was a member of the Gherardini family of Florence and Tuscany in Italy. Little is known about Lisa's life. She was born in Florence and married as a teenager to a cloth and silk merchant who later became a local official. She was mother to six children and led what is thought to have been a comfortable and ordinary middle-class life.

She was depicted in an oil portrait by the Florentine artist Leonardo da Vinci completed circa 1503-1519. A copy of her portrait was hung in the Hospital wing at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]

In 1996 the newspaper The Guardian reported that "famous portrait the Mona Lisa to appear in latest Tango ads".
