Loved and vilified in equal measure, Caterina Riaro Sforza de' Medici bestrode Renaissance Italy: a strategist to match Machiavelli, a warrior to equal the Borgias, and a mother determined to maintain her family's honour. Set against a backdrop of glittering splendour and murderous intrigue, this compelling biography charts the life and accomplishments of the brilliant, charismatic and fearless countess, her turbulent years at the papal court, and the three marriages that ended in bloodshed and heartbreak.
