Summary:
Poisoning, incest, corruption and intrigue...this is the legacy of the House of Borgia. This family was at the very center of the Renaissance. Originally from Spain, the Borgias were said to have employed every unscrupulous tactic to secure their position in Roman society. They were incredibly wealthy and politically cunning. Their influence on the Roman Catholic Church was unparalleled. Their passion, their scorn for conventional morality and their willingness to put the family's interest before all others...contributed to the Borgias' meteoric rise. The family left their incredible mark on one of the richest chapters of European history. But how much of the legacy is fact and how much is legend? Were the Borgias as monstrous as many claimed? Or were they victims of their harshest critics? Whatever the truth, and we may never know, the Borgia legacy continues to inspire fear and awe.
