Summary
In 15th century Rome, Rodrigo Borgia, Pope Alexander VI, was a man whose appetite for power, luxury and women was matched only by his love of family. Surrounding him were his extraordinary children: Jofre, Juan, Lucrezia and Cesare
Summary
The story opens with Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia manipulating papal elections in 1492 to become the new Pope Alexander. Determined to establish a family dynasty, he appoints his son Cesare cardinal in his stead and, after a strategically engineered episode of incest between siblings Cesare and Lucrezia, begins ruthlessly eliminating rivals and marrying his children into alliances with the offspring of noble families of France and Spain
