Yeah, seriously. To think saying such things is okay, just really isn't okay. Makes me even more curious about the time period. Which is kind of weird because I'm sure when I was studying my major there were references to the family but I just didn't catch them because it wasn't important at the time

At that time period it must have been somewhat acceptable or common place for spreading rumours like that I am reading more about Lucrezia's life so maybe I'll get more insight into what life was like then

I mean I get that their were political motivations for it and it's not all that unlike the rumors people spread about others today but sometimes I just feel like there should be a line. But If you get more insight into you should definitely share it here

It's the norm back then. Most of the gossips back then started in court and usually surrounds the peers. The most scandalous it is, the better and everyone wants to know. The people who spreads the gossip, or the person who have first hand knowledge of the gossip is usually welcome in more social circle.

They don't have movie theater back then so I guess this is their form of entertainment

Yes they have to make their own entertainment back then I can imagine all the gossips in the Vatican and in the social circles

Oh gosh! This reminds of the protocol that they had within their palaces/villas. The way people were received and the etiquette process in it was just crazy (for some reason this just came to me out of nowhere ). The way people acted back then was just totally different from how things are today

Some of those etiquette are still being practice in today's court Lucky for us, none of us are ladies of the court and work for any members of the royal

Seriously! Although in some ways I don't think I'd mind so much since I tend to be an etiquette marm anyway . But it's so strange to think that everyone used to live by those rules and now we're just like 'whatever'

I'm thankful that I wasn't born during that time. My head would be chopped off long ago

I always wanted to be born back then and I do have a certain fascination for it although I was always more medieval than renaissance even though I took so many renaissance classes

It is so fascinating the rules of the court and the way they were in the Renaissance

I hope we get more Father/Daughter scenes in S2

Yeah, it's really interesting to think about what ruled people back then

I definitely hope for that.
