Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici (11 August 1667 – 18 Februar 1743) wis the last lineal descent o the Hoose o Medici. A patron of the arts, she bequeathed the Medici's art collection, including the contents of the Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti an the Medicean villas, which she inherited upon her brither Gian Gastone's death in 1737, and her Palatine treasures to the Tuscan state, on the condition that nae part o it could be removed frae "the Capital o the grand ducal State....[and from] the succession of His Serene Grand Duke." When Gian Gastone died in 1737, Francis Stephen's envoy offered Anna Maria Luisa the position of regent o Tuscany but she declined. Her death, in 1743, brought the Hoose o Medici tae an end.
