|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
Lisa del Giocondo, née Gherardini (15 June, 1479 – 15 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.
