Leonardo was the illegitimate son of Messer Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a Florentine notary, and Caterina, a peasant who may have been a slave from the Middle East. Despite his humble beginnings, Leonardo was a man of unrivaled intellect. He is widely considered to be one of the world's greatest painters and arguably the most talented person ever to have lived. He was a mathematician, astronomer, biologist & unequaled inventor. His theories, paintings, designs, sketches & inventions have left an indelible mark on future civilizations. He was truly the quintessential renaissance man. Very few men that have come since have equalled his brilliance.

excerpt from Wikipedia: His notes and drawings display an enormous range of interests and preoccupations, some as mundane as lists of groceries and people who owed him money and some as intriguing as designs for wings and shoes for walking on water. There are compositions for paintings, studies of details and drapery, studies of faces and emotions, of animals, babies, dissections, plant studies, rock formations, whirlpools, war machines, flying machines and architecture.

About his step-mom:

"It is also interesting to know that Amador was intertwined to a similar last names one of that being Amadori in italy, both families use the same Family Crest (Crest with Star) This particular line was the one of the ancestral lines of the Amadors and on that note Albieri Di Giovanni Amadori in 1453 married Ser Piero da Vinci who son was none other than Leonardo Da Vinci. Leonardo was born in 1452, to Sier Pietro daVinci and Catalina ( whom were never married). Just shy of his 1st birthday Ser Pietro married Albieri Di Giovanni Amadori, becoming his mother. Her brother Franceso Di Giovanny Amadori was Michalelangelo's Pupil and long time friend.( Amador and Amadori use the same crest)" http://www.theamadorfamilyworldgenealogyproject.yolasite.com/the-amador-origins.php
