Description
The Borgias are synonymous with the corruption and ambition of Renaissance Italy, and here the author of The Rise and Fall of the House of Medici and Rome: The Biography of a City spins an "engrossing account of a famous dynasty" (Publishers Weekly). Rodrigo Borgia, known to history as Pope Alexander VI, was the voracious central figure of a dynasty notorious for seizing power, wealth, land, and titles through bribery, marriage, and murder. Christopher Hibbert also profiles two of Rodrigo's seven papal offspring: his daughter Lucrezia, variously accused of incest and poisoning, and her brother Cesare, who murdered one of Lucrezia's husbands and inspired Machiavelli's The Prince.
