Mini character studies of the four Borgia children…
Cesare was both the hero and the villain. Wanting the sunlight and glory, but working best in the shadows. He was not only aware of how power was used, but was used to wielding it himself. His grasp of political realities was superb.
Juan was a tragedy waiting to be written. His father's blind spot. His dreams had all turned into nightmares.
Lucrezia was sweet poison. For all her charm, there was a sharp edge. A portrait of beauty and betrayal - with her as the betrayer and the betrayed. She'll survive. But at what cost?
Joffre would be nothing more than a forgotten foot note to the Borgia story – an afterthought.
