The nameBorgia is synonymous with the corruption, nepotism, and greed that were rife inRenaissance Italy. The powerful, voracious Rodrigo Borgia, better known tohistory as Pope Alexander VI, was the central figure of the dynasty. Two of hisseven papal offspring also rose to power and fame-his daughter Lucrezia and herbrother Cesare, who murdered Lucrezia's husband and served as the model forMachiavelli's The Prince.
