He was the dishonest son of Messer Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a Florentine legal representative and Caterina, who was a peasant. Leonardo had no last name in the contemporary way, though 'da Vinci' plainly meaning 'of Vinci' was his family name given to him, "Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci", which means "Leonardo, son of Piero from Vinci." A little bit is acknowledged regarding his early days, which has been the focus of past speculation by a lot of historians.
