Publisher's Summary

The name Borgia is synonymous with the corruption, nepotism and greed that were rife in Renaissance Italy. Notorious for seizing power, wealth, land and titles through bribery, marriage and murder, the dynasty's dramatic rise from its Spanish roots to its occupation of the highest position in Renaissance society forms a gripping tale. Erudite, witty and always insightful, Hibbert removes the layers of myth around the Borgia family and creates a portrait alive with a superb sense of character and place.

Great read. Great narration.

I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and well narrated. I wish that this author (and narrator) had all his books available on audio. Thoroughly recommended read as an overview of The Borgias. 5*

Neither educational or entertaining

Neither educational or entertaining just seem to follow at time line with endless dates and shopping list of minor fact of thing you really did not need to know .No narrative.
