£8.99

Available in Stock

Setting aside the gossip and distortion that have shrouded the Borgias for centuries, Meyer's portrait of the great Renaissance family offers a new understanding of who the Borgias were and what they did. From the election of Alonso Borgia as pope in 1455, to the deaths of Cesare in 1507 and Lucrezia in 1519, the book is a history of popes, warriors, lovers and ambitious political adventurers based on a re-examination of the sources rather than 'established Borgia myth'. American-cut pages. Felt-tipped mark on lower trimmed edge and slightly off-mint.
