In 1474 Isabella was born into a family of Ferrara. Isabella's father believed in equality for men and women, so Isabella was well educated on that.
At age 16 Isabella married Francesco Gonzaga. She became Marchioness of Mutana because he was the prince.
Her Early Life
When her husband francesco died she ruled Mantua. She became "first lady of the renaissance." She became good with debating with people much older than herself.
Being leader she learned to speak greek and latin. She was well educated in political talent. She showed leadership skills when she became cheif in 1509.
She had 8 kids
Her husband died of syphillis. Right after her sister and infant passed away.
She became ruler of her own town in 1529 but died 10 years after
I feel isabella shaped our world today because she made it possible for a girl to rule a place. Also she had 8 kids. Thats impressive.
