1452 - 1519. Renaissance architect, inventor, engineer and painter.

Leonardo was born well before modern European naming conventions developed. His full name is 'Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci,' which means "Leonardo, sired by Piero, from Vinci". Leonardo himself simply signed his works "Leonardo" or "Io, Leonardo" ("I, Leonardo").
