Description
Throughout a tumultuous half-century the Borgias held center stage in the Italian Renaissance as ruthless popes, statesmen, warriors, lovers, and political adventurers. Five centuries after their fall they remain symbols of the depths to which humanity can descend—but did these Borgias of legend actually exist? Sweeping aside the gossip, slander, and distortion that have shrouded the Borgias for centuries, the author of The Tudors and A World Undone here offers a unique portrait of the infamous Renaissance family and their world.

"A fascinating look into the lives of the notorious Italian Renaissance family and its reputation for womanizing, murder and corruption. [G.J.] Meyer turns centuries of accepted wisdom about the Borgias on its head, probing deep into contemporary documents and neglected histories to reveal some surprising truths.... A gripping history of a tempestuous time and an infamous family."—Shelf Awareness
