Many different places are mentioned - some no longer in existence - so keep the internets handy!
He also, however, seems to like Lucretia unlike most historians. He puts Lucretia's poisonous reputation down as sour-grape rumors spread by her family's enemies. Not to say she wasn't a little evil though. After reading this book going to read Caesar Borgia's bio but not anytime soon you really understand why the Borgias were called the original mafia family.

Read this book if you want an in depth look at what Rome was like in the early 's. Its more of an academic read than anything else. View 1 comment. I was reading this book, more or less, for a very, very long time. In other words Hence the multi-year delay in finishing it. This biography was first published in and presumably written several years before that, since appears to be after the author's death. On the upside, the book gives a pretty comprehensive look at what he could find out about Lucrezia's life and the lives of the rest of her family, and is very well sourced, quoting extensively from primary sources and illustrating exactly where there are gaps or questions of veracity in the historical record.
So while it is definitely dated, it's not a bad piece of scholarly work for the time.
Lucretia Borgia - German-Icelandic Dictionary - Glosbe
It is, however, a little dry and hard to follow sometimes, largely due to the author's ever so proper habit of referring to people by their titles rather than their given names much of the time, and many nobles of the era went through a lot of different titles over the course of their lives. The author is enormously pro-Lucrezia and unfortunately I think that's sort of boring? There's fortunately some solid information on the machinations of said power-hungry relatives to keep things interesting, though.
Overall this was an interesting enough curiosity but if you want to actually learn about the Borgias there are many much more recent and probably more easily readable books available. I should check some of them out one of these days. And if you just want to be entertained, the ridiculous Showtime show is very fun and has a very attractive cast. For those interested in a comprehensive look at the Borgia family, this is an excellent read. It is filled with a substantial amount of detail that Gregorovius backs up through a tremendous amount of contemporary sources.
And while I'm not entirely sold on his analysis, he does present a fairly compelling argument that Lucretia Borgia was not the monster that is most often depicted. My one issue with this book is that for a title that was meant to be about Lucretia Borgia, I felt many For those interested in a comprehensive look at the Borgia family, this is an excellent read. My one issue with this book is that for a title that was meant to be about Lucretia Borgia, I felt many other members of the Borgia family were covered in nearly as much detail.
Granted, there are episodes mentioned in the lives of her father and brother that probably receive greater attention in their own biographies that were not drawn out here, but there was still an overwhelming amount of time that was dedicated to her various family members. Understanding that it would be inaccurate to look at Lucretia in a vacuum independent from the machinations of her family, as someone who was interested in reading primarily just about Lucretia Borgia, I found some of the reading tedious and unnecessary overkill.
I would have much preferred a condensed version with a greater focus solely on Lucretia. While my personal preference would have been shorter book more sharply focused on Lucretia, however, its very detail is what does make it a great and informative read for those who have a general interest in the Borgias as a whole. For those not familiar with the Borgias though, they may want to do some preliminary reading, as with all of the various names, dates, and locales, it can be difficult to keep the facts straight if one does not already possess a basic understanding of this infamous family and period in history.
Lucrezia hat mich schon immer als historische Figur fasziniert Ich war also sehr froh dieses Buch bei meinen Grosseltern zu sehen Trotzdem muss ich sagen, dass die Erwartung zu gross war und das Resultat eher negativ. Dann wissen Lucrezia hat mich schon immer als historische Figur fasziniert Es gibt keine Notizen, die, meiner Meinung nach, sehr wichtig sind.
Es hilft dem Leser bei vielem. Das Einziege, das dieses Buch geretet hat ist die Schrift, die sehr angenehm ist. Ich kann dieses Buch also nicht empfehlen.
The author, a nineteen century historian, set out to research, examine and present the facts about the life of Lucretia Borgia. The book is very readable with a modern feel about the language, and Lucretia's life is set against the many political alliances, pomp, ceremony, manners and characters of Renaissance Italy, not forgetting the numberless battles for land, property and riches.

Events leading up to the scandals and notoriety that have attached themselves to Lucretia - the deaths of her husbands in particular - are examined without prejudice - there's none of the sensationalism found in some modern works, and although the author comes to conclusions, these are backed up by textual evidence.
