  4. The House of Borgia

    The House of Borgia

    Christopher Hibbert

    £44.95

    Nepotism, murder and debauchery abound in this gripping portrait of a family that bribed their way to power in Renaissance Italy. The first illustrated edition, this is designed in series with Hibbert’s The Rise and Fall of the House of Medici.

After the fall of Rome and the Dark Ages came an extraordinary period of invention and conflict that would change Europe forever - the Medieval era and the Renaissance. The Folio Society publishes a wide range of history books covering the Medieval & Renaissance periods, from the machinations of popes and kings to the ordinary people and society. Each rare book includes beautiful, lovingly researched illustrations.
