Francesco Andreini

Francesco Andreini (c. 1548 - 1624) was an Italian actor.

Andreini was born at Pistoia. He was a member of the company of i Gelosi which Henry IV of France summoned to Paris to his bride, the young queen Marie de Medici, thus introducing the commedia dell'arte style to France.

Both his wife, Isabella Andreini, and their son, Giambattista Andreini, were also distinguished in the arts.

Francesco Andreini (1697 - 1751) is also the name of a Rococo era painter from Cesena.
