Lucrezia Borgia (1480-1519) was fortunate or unfortunate (depending on how you look at it) to be born into the powerful Borgia family, whose patriarch became Pope Alexander Vl.

In order to obtain and maintain control, Pope Alexander used his beautiful (illegitimate) daughter Lucrezia as a pawn, marrying her off to different men depending on how advantageous they would be for his own purposes. When they no longer suited his needs, he would have them dispatched, usually by having them put to death!

Somehow, the blame through history has been placed on Lucrezia. Learn the real facts about Lucrezia's life, misfortunes, and losses, under a more balanced perspective.

Join Anita Sanseverino in The Rehabilitation of Lucrezia Borgia and discover how Lucrezia served the interests of her father, the pope and her brother, Cesare Borgia.
