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

Thanks for the new thread, Alex. Can you by any chance correct the mistakes in the title? It's a bit hard to look at even from the outside –

Because Midnight, Texas got renewed for a second season and we can't wait to see more of François!

Thank you!

OMG, I don't know how I did that, Nina. I fixed the "because" Nina. As for the François, I didn't know how to make the C with the little tail, so I just copied and pasted yours.

If you just write "c" here without the cédille (or cedilla) it's pronouced like "k" and not like "s" as it should be with "ç".

At my personal MacBook I obviously do not have that issue but if you find yourself cursed with a foreign keyboard, try this: How To Type Special French Characters
Make sure Number Lock is on, then hold down Alt and type 0231 for ç for instance. I know that to still work under Windows 10. Not sure about the shortcuts they propose. It says here Ctrl+,+c but I've also read AltGr+,+c ... can't really test that now because I have no Windows PC here.

I've watched 2 times already , but this is a film, what need to watch more times. Not sure you can understand firts time. Even so I love it , Francois very good in it. I admit , I don't understand the end of the Chesterton's book . Thursday movie more understandable and doesn't follow tight the original book.
Very interesting movie , I recommend to everyone . There are action, sex,
philosophizing , humor in it.

That's one more thing than you can find in a Kinder Surprise Egg. Can you stream that movie on Prime?

Well, Alex, now you know.

Yes, thanks Nina. And I have no idea what Prime is. I don't normally stream movies.

Nice gif, Arinna.
