The island was inhabited as early as 846 AD, when it was known for its olive trees and was dubbed the Isola San Vittore. By 998 it had become Isola Maggiore. It passed to the Borromeo family in the sixteenth century, and works proceeded slowly to build the villa and the azalea-rich, English-style gardens around it. By 1704 the island was being called Isola Madre, most likely after Margherita Trivulzio, mother of Renato I Borromeo.
