Read This: Lucretia Borgia

Lucretia Borgia is quite famous still, considering she died in 1519. However as common as her name is associated with poisoning and other imprecations, few have read her history - no matter how literate.

To that end, I recommend elucidation via the excellent biography 'Lucretia Borgia', a translation from the German. Now over 100 years old, and concerning events nearly 5 centuries past, the book is accessible and interesting. Available in several formats from Project Gutenburg. Enjoy!
