Cesare Borgia as cardinal. August Cesare resigns his Cardinalcy!
As the political situation changed, Pope Alexander VI looked to align with France, enemy of Alfonso's family. To this end he arranged a marriage between Cesare Borgia and Charlotte of Albret, sister of King John III of Navarre.
White Jesus modeled on Cesare Borgia? The theory is that people were generally not too enthusiastic about the Catholic Church’s regular massacres of Jews and Muslims, because the people they were killing looked like Jesus. Pope Alexander VI then.
From Cesare Borgia la sua vita, la sua famiglia, i suoi tempi (Cesare Borgia, his life, his family, his times) by Gustavo Sacerdote. I had not seen this before with this kind of detail as it is on the ceiling of the cathedral in Orvieto. Luca Signorelli painted it as part of The Antichrst from the Last Judgment Fresco Cycle. Cesare was ruler of Orvieto at this time, and there are references to him being in Orvieto in 94 and 96, so it is plausible that Signorelli saw or met him.
