Vittoria della Rovere (7 February 1622 – 5 March 1694) was Grand Duchess of Tuscany as the wife of Grand Duke Ferdinando II.

Pieter de Jode II (1606 - 1670-74) was a Flemish printmaker and only son of Pieter de Jode I. Engraver and art dealer; only son of Pieter de Jode I (q.v.). Born in Antwerp, active in Antwerp and master of the Guild of St Luke from 1628/9. Married to Elizabeth Loemans (d.1642) and Clara van den Enden (d.1652/3), sister of Martinus van den Enden (q.v.). Worked for Anthony van Dyck (q.v.) and his work is often difficult to distinguish from that of his father (he probably only signed as Pieter de Jode junior until his father's death in 1634). 1631-32 in Paris, 1667 in Brussels. Died after 1674, probably in England. Father of Arnold de Jode (q.v.). Teacher of Mattheus Borrekens (q.v.). Ended in financial difficulties.
