The end of the 15th Century: Rome is being ruled by Cesare Borgia, the eldest son of Pope Alexander VI, a power hungry man with an immense sexual appetite. Following the advice of Niccolo Macchiavelli, Borgia decides he will unify all the Italian states to become even more powerful. In order to do this, he needs the help of his sister, Lucrezia. She's married to the Count of Pesaro, but would be politically more useful married to Alphonse of Aragon. So, Cesare Borgia arranges for the assassination of her current husband. But soon after Lucrezia's new marriage, Cesare decides the Duke has become useless and moves to have him assassinated, so Lucrezia can marry yet again!
