Cesare Borgia

Cesare Borgia was born in Rome on September 13th, 1475; the son of Cardinal Rodrigo de Lanzol y Borgia, soon to become Pope Alexander VI, and his mistress Vanozza dei Cattanei. He was made Bishop of Pamplona at the age of 15. Following school in Perugia and Pisa where Cesare studied law, along with his father's elevation to Pope, Cesare was made Cardinal three years later. After his brother Juan's death, Cesare became the first person in history to resign the cardinalate. On the same day the French King Louis XII named Cesare Duke of Valentinois, and this title, along with his former position as Cardinal of Valencia, explains the nickname "Valentino". Cesare's military career was founded upon his father's ability to distribute patronage, along with his alliance with France (reinforced by his marriage with Charlotte d'Albret, sister of John III of Navarre), in the course of the Italian Wars. At the time of his father's death in 1503, Cesare's dominons in the Romagna disintegrated without continued Papal support. In order to smooth the way to his election as pope, Giuliano Della Rovere - later Pope Julius II - made an agreement with Cesare, promising to make him captain of the papal troops again. After the conclave, Cesare surrendered the Castel Sant' Angelo and came to live with Della Rovere in the Vatican. The pope toyed with the idea of using Cesare to stem the Venetians in the Romagna, for he could still attract loyalty not only from the Spanish but also, to some degree, from the people of the province. However, the Venetians claimed that all they were doing was taking the lands of their common enemy, Cesare Boriga. Hence, Julius II asked Cesare for the countersigns of the fortresses that he held (Cesena, Bertinoro and Forlì). In return Cesare received a brief saying that he could go where he liked once the cities had been surrendered. He went to Naples and begun to try to recruit troops but when the Spanish monarchs heard of this they ordered their viceroy Gonsalvo to arrest Cesare. Exiled to Spain in 1504, he was imprisoned in the Castle of La Mota, Medina del Campo, from which he escaped and joined his brother-in-law King John III of Navarre. Subsequently, Cesare was killed in 1507 while fighting for the Navarrese king in the city of Viana, Spain.

In "The Prince", Machiavelli uses Cesare Borgia as an example to elucidate the dangers of acquiring a principality by virtue of another. Cesare also inspired many novels and was portrayed in many movies and television series based on the Borgia's rise and fall. For instance most recently:


The Borgias (TV, 2011) played by François Arnaud
Borgia (TV, 2011) played by Mark Ryder
Los Borgia (Movie, 2006) played by Sergio Peris-Mencheta
The Borgias (TV, 1981) played by Oliver Cotton

Now I noticed on the Showtime site and Balazs Juszt's Thursday tumblr that the rings that they have seem to bear a surprising similarity don't they.

You're welcome, Christine. Hey, your DM was a little misleading.

Oooooh, that's a beautiful ring! But I don't like that it's in "memoriam." Kind of implies the show is dead.


And now I'm off to the watch!

That's cause I started the PM to ask that question but noticed during the writing of it that we needed a new Francois/Cesare thread Alex . So it came out slightly confusing.

I would rather have the real Cesare's armor!
Kim I doubt that this one is even possible unless the museum that owns it is willing to cough it up and you have Bill Gates' money. So I would be happy with The Borgias version since it is rather close to historical armor wore during the day. Seen here:



Vs The Borgias version.

All good things

Never mind the fact that shirts and other material things are probably washed between uses and armor most likely not washed. (might I remind you of the Popes bloody robe in ep 2 and then like magic it was clean the next episode)
Better in every way to have the armor I think.

It's a rare man that can wear a helmet and still look hot...

That's actually a great b&w coloring. I hate everyone that can color b&w because I can't. It always looks awful.

Nor does anyone but May think any of her artwork is bad.

Neta made a bunch of Cesare screencaps yesterday and today so I thought I would bring a few of them here.













And my personal favorite for obvious reasons

Love Cesare's face in the first one. It's a serious moment but it looks funny, I when I saw it.

I like the coloring on the killing from s1, the blue background looks cool.

I want his black cape, why don't they sell it? They should sell their rings and jewelries too.

Sadly it seems a lot of items are being sold to other shows not just the public. It looks like DaVinci's Demons now owns Rodrigo's Papal Robes so who knows if items like the rings or the cape will be sold to the public.
