|Title:||Carlo di Ferdinando I (1596-1666) - un caso di estrema longevita nonostante la salute cagionevole||English Title:||Carlo di Ferdinando I (1598-1666) - a case of extreme longevity in spite of ill health||Contributor(s):||Albury, William Randall (author); Matucci-Cerenic, Marco (author); Weisz, George M (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/13395||Abstract:||Carlo de' Medici, grandson of Cosimo I, the first Grand Duke of Tuscany, and third son of his successor, Ferdinando I, died on 17 June 1666 at the age of 70 years and three months. This was an unusually long lifespan for someone of his time and especially for a Medici male, since at the time of his death Carlo had lived longer than any man in his family during the last two centuries. What made Carlo's longevity all the more surprising was that he suffered from a number of serious pathological conditions throughout his life, beginning in early childhood. This chapter presents the story of Carlo's lifestyle, illnesses and medical treatment in the context of the broader history of health and illness in the Medici family.||Publication Type:||Entry In Reference Work||Source of Publication:||I Medici: Uomini, Potere e Passione, p. 365-371||Publisher:||Schnell und Steiner||Place of Publication:||Mannheim, Germany||ISBN:||9783795426354||Field of Research (FOR):||210307 European History (excl British, Classical Greek and Roman)||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||970121 Expanding Knowledge in History and Archaeology||HERDC Category Description:||N Entry In Reference Work||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 214
