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.

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. So long as the desired results were achieved and there was no one who could call them to account, what difference could it make who knew knew or cared?

With Game of Thrones coming to an end this would be a great replacement. HBO need to get on that.
Showtime already did years ago the series the borgias. Legit all he did here is give you a synopsis of what happened on the show.

A lot of the things said about Lucrezia were probably just propaganda, like the things said about Marie-Antoinette, the French queen. Lucrezia tried to save her second husband from being murdered and she lived a perfectly respectable life in her third marriage when she was away from her father and brother. I think, she was more a victim herself than a criminal.

The last direct family blood related Borgia o Borja is in Ecuador. His name is Rodrigo Borja Cevallos. When they came to Ecuador mostly they lived in the city of Riobamba or Quito where the main business was caw farms. My gran grandfather was from there he came from Spain in the 1900.

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.
