Leocadia Zorillo Weiss

 

La_Leocadia_(Goya)

 

Leocadia was married to a jeweler Isideo Weiss.¬†¬†Leocadia had an unhappy marriage with Isideo, and was separated from him in 1811. Her husband cited “illicit conduct” during the divorce proceedings. She had two children before the marriage dissolved, and bore a third, Rosario, in 1814 when she was 26. Isideo was not the father, and it has often been speculated that the child belonged to Goya. Leocadia lived with Goya after his first wife Josefa died in 1812 and in 1824 followed him to Provence and stayed with him until his death in 1828.
