Synopsis

The most evil woman in history? A pawn of her powerful family? A skilled ruler and a generous patron of the arts? Once described as the 'greatest whore there ever was in Rome', Lucrezia Borgia has captivated historians and artists for centuries with wildly conflicting accounts of her character. This book gathers together all the crucial information needed for a study into the life of Lucrezia, including a detailed timeline, a biographical profile, an extensive description of her life in Rome, and a discussion of the Borgia family's legendary connection to poison.

Optimized for navigation as an eBook, with a table of contents linked to every section, this book also features a broad collection of texts regarding Lucrezia and her notorious family.
