A nobleman native of Florence, he came to France in the train of Maria de Medici, wife of King Henri IV, and married the queen's lady-in-waiting, Leonora Dori, known as "Galigaï".

By 1617, Louis XIII, incited by his favourite Charles de Luynes, was tired of Concini's tutelage. The baron de Vitry, head of the royal guards, received in the king's name the order to imprison him. According to some authors, young Louis XIII agreed that Concini could be killed if he resisted. Apprehended on the bridge of the Louvre, Concini was killed by guards after allegedly calling out "À moi!" ("To me!") for help, which was interpreted as resistance. According to other authors, Concini was deliberately assassinated near the Louvre, the result of a secret plot organised by Louis XIII king of France and the Duke of Luynes Charles d'Albert, which was then executed by the Baron of Vitry, Nicolas de L'Hospital.
