Cesare Borgia

Episode 4.5: Cesare Borgia

In a special crossover episode with A History of Italy Podcast, we dare to enter the deadly and decadent court of one of the most notorious families in history. The Borgias rose from relative obscurity in Spain to become one of the most powerful dynasties of Renaissance Italy, with the ambitious Rodrigo Borgia, who reigned as Pope Alexander VI, and his ruthless son Cesare, scheming and murdering their way to dynastic glory - and infamy. We will conclude our look at the family next week.
