about

You've seen the award winning television show now read the history behind Pope Alexander VI, Lucretia and Cesare Borgias. The Borgias became prominent in ecclesiastical and political affairs in the 15th century. Today they are remembered for their corrupt rule, and the name Borgias has become a synonym for nepotism and treachery.

The Borgias Collection contains the following three books:


The Borgias by Alexandre Dumas

There are dreadful -- perhaps scurrilous -- rumors about the Borgias of renaissance Italy, and here Dumas, author of such classics as THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, in his Celebrated Crimes series, dishes up the dirt in all its ugly glory. This book was not written for children. Dumas has minced no words in describing the violent scenes of a violent time. In some instances facts appear distorted out of their true perspective, and in others the author makes unwarranted charges. The careful, mature reader -- for whom the books are intended -- will recognize and allow for this fact.

Lucretia Borgia by Ferdinand Gregorovius

According to original documents and correspondence of her day. A definitive history of Lucretia Borgia divided into two books: Book One - Lucretia Borgia in Rome; and Book Two - Lucretia in Ferrara. Book One discusses Lucretia's parents, her education, her marriages, up to the arrival and return of the bridal party of her third marriage. Book Two begins with her journey to Ferrara, events following the Pope's death, through her death.

The Life of Cesare Borgia by Raphael Sabatini

The Most Evil Man in Italy? Cesare Borgia served as Machiavelli's model of the ideal ruler for The Prince. The illegitimate son of Pope Alexander VI, he was a cardinal at age 22. He lived hard and died hard, murdering his enemies, seizing power in Florence, and marrying off his sister Lucretia for political gain, not once but three times. This is his remarkable story.
