The Borgias were a noble family from the years of the renaissance. Although hailing originally from Spain, they rose to great power in Italy and more than one Borgia became a Catholic Pope. However, despite entrenching themselves in religion, they were known for caring little about morality. They made enemies with many powerful noble families, and have been accused of nearly every depravity you can imagine.

Lying about your accuser is one of the many maquiavelian teachings.. I bet the italians Maquiavelians were lying left and right about this family that originally was from Spain and probably were the most straight. The darkness will lie about the light...

Rodrigo Borgia quite literally pimped Lucrezia out to numerous lovers and husbands. Much of her reputation as an evil witch was rumours spread out amply out by enemies of the family, of which evil acts appeared something to which they aspired, and didn't appear to care much about ther reputations.

I think, she was more a victim herself than a criminal.

Anne was smart.
She did not deserve to die. The idea that she had sex with six men including her brother is ridiculous. Anne was constantly watched and with her ladies. Katherine Howard had an affair with one man and got caught.
Celibacy was apparently not mandatory in the Catholic for a number of centuries, in fact, one Pope was said to be the son of a previous Pope. Even today, the Catholic Church has been ordaining married men, so they must not be as strict as they like to pretend.
