Galileo, was an Italian physicist, mathematician, engineer, astronomer.
Personal Life

In 1600, Galileo met Marina Gamba, a Venetian woman, who bore him three children out of wedlock: daughters Virginia and Livia, and son Vincenzo. He never married Marina, possibly due to financial worries and possibly fearing his illegitimate children would threaten his social standing. He worried the two girls would never marry well, and when they were older, had them enter a convent. His sons birth was eventually legitimized and he became a successful musician.
