The Borgias : Power and Fortune, Hardback Book

The Borgias : Power and Fortune Hardback

Description

The Borgia family have become a byword for evil. Corruption, incest, ruthless megalomania, avarice and vicious cruelty - all have been associated with their name.

But the story of this remarkable family is far more than a tale of sensational depravities, it also marks a decisive stage in European history.

During this crucial period when the Renaissance was coming into its own, it was the rise and fall of the Borgia dynasty which held centre stage.

These were leading players at the very moment when our modern world was creating itself.

By relating this influential family to their time, together with the world which enabled them to flourish, Paul Strathern tells the story of this great dynasty as never before.
