Editorial Reviews

The Borgia family legacy is one filled with tales of treachery, poison, incest, and murder. In this intriguing program, Ancient Mysteries takes a fascinating look at the infamous family at the center of the Italian Renaissance. Originally from Spain, the Borgias were said to have employed every unscrupulous tactic to secure their position in Roman society. Using their wealth and political cunning, the family - headed up by Pope Alexander VI - enjoyed unparalleled influence on the Roman Catholic church, while their unbridled self-interest and scorn for conventional morality contributed to their meteoric rise - and their tragic end. The family left an indelible mark on one of the most notable chapters in European history. But how much of the legacy is fact and how much is legend? Were the Borgias as monstrous as many claimed? Or were they merely victims of their harshest critics? Whatever the truth, and the world may never know, the Borgia legacy continues to inspire fear and awe

I couldn't help but feel that the tone manipulated the audience by making statements that were never backed up by facts. Surely the history of the Borgia family is one that is filled with murder, corruption, intrigue and I suppose incest but the information is presented to make the audience shake its head on how could a pope and his cardinal son ever have gotten away with such things. Trouble is many popes and cardinals had mistresses and children out of wedlock and have themselves manipulated people to have a favorable outcome in their ambitious climb to the top. True while this isn't the same thing as murder and incest - I feel that this was laid on rather heavily to titilate the viewer. Go to wikipedia instead.

For anyone interested in the Borgia household and the Renaissance, this is a documentary for you. Very informative and from my own research, correct in most of their facts. There are a few very obvious mistakes, but overall a great movie
