The Borgias rose to prominence at the time of the Renaissance. Originally from Spain, the family became involved in both political and religious affairs, producing two popes. They have been accused of committing many crimes, including murder - especially poisoning - and incest. However, saints are also counted among the members of the family. This course will explore the history and myth of the House of Borgia from its origins to their demise, focusing on contemporary records and historical accounts.
