Overview

Élu pape en 1492 sous le nom d’Alexandre IV, Rodrigo Borgia fut l’une des plus extraordinaires fripouilles de son époque.
Avant de servir Dieu, le nouveau souverain pontife cherche d’abord à servir les siens, à commencer par ses enfants, Juan, César, Geoffroi et Lucrèce.
Mais sa position dominante et son népotisme vont susciter des jalousies, qui bientôt deviennent meurtrières… En cette Italie de la Renaissance, intrigues, complots et empoisonnements ne sont pas de vains mots !
À la mort de Rodrigo, l’ennemi de la famille, le Cardinal della Rovere lui succède. Et c’est tout le clan Borgia qui se trouve en danger.
César, qui inspirera à Machiavel le personnage du Prince, se réfugie à Naples avant de fuir en Espagne, où il sera fait prisonnier. Mais, bien décidé à retrouver le statut qui était le sien, il s’évade et ourdit sa vengeance… Don Corleone n’avait rien inventé ! Première édition : l’Archipel, 2002.
