Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Sarah Bradford's "Lucrezia Bogia: Life, Love and Death in Renaissance Italy" is the first biography of Lucrezia Borgia for over sixty years. Lucrezia Borgia - an infamous murderess or simply the victim of bad press? Lucrezia Borgia's name has echoed through history as a byword for evil - a poisoner who committed incest with her natural father, Pope Alexander VI, and with her brother, Cesare Borgia. Long considered the most ruthless of Italian Renaissance noblewomen, her tarnished reputation has prevailed long since her own lifetime. In this definitive biography, a work of huge scholarship and erudition, Sarah Bradford gives a fascinating account of Lucrezia's life in all its colourful controversy. Daughter, sister, wife and mother, Lucrezia Borgia was surrounded by wealth, privilege and intrigue. But what was the truth behind her extraordinary existence - was she a monster of cruelty and deceit, or simply the pawn of her power-hungry father and brother? "Sarah Bradford writes with cool authority and her research in Italian archives is exemplary. No other biography is likely to bring us closer to Lucrezia". ("Spectator"). "Bradford's forte, ever since she was a history-mad girl, is thinking herself into other lives". ("Daily Telegraph"). Sarah Bradford is a historian and biographer. Her books include "Cesare Borgia" (1976), "Disraeli" (1982), winner of the "New York Times" Book of the Year, "Princess Grace" (1984), "Sacherevell Sitwell" (1993), "Elizabeth: A Biography of Her Majesty the Queen" (1996), "America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis" (2000), "Lucrezia Borgia" (2005) and "Diana" (2007). She frequently appears on television as an authority on her biographical subjects and as a commentator on notable royal events. She is currently working on a full scale biography of Queen Victoria. She lives in London.
