  1. Reading historical fiction with romance is my favorite elective reading time. I followed the entire English monarchy from William the conquer to Victoria in the 1900’s. The Borgias were connected too through the Vatican. Many of them were Popes. However the Borgias were also known for their skills in poison an illegitimate offsprings. I have read almost all Victoria Holt, Jean Plaidy, and Phillipa Carr. All the same writer. I did checks on her occasionally through bio references.

    • Great fan of British history , it has always intrigued me that how this small island nation was able to conquer huge lands.
      for the Catholic church despite being not a part of catholic community i admire catholic church worlds oldest institution.I think democracy or oligarchy was practiced in holy roman empire before Britannia and still exists.
      Mark Ryder and John Doman have both acted superbly in this drama
      The role of Borgia in medieval Europe was nothing different from the rest of princely class but their role as supreme pontiffs made them a target of critique which i believe to be hypocrisy as the other princes are absolved of their crimes just because that they were worldly sovereigns .

      • That will no longer be so. One persons achievements can not be acknowledged to superior over anothers if the participation is civil (humane) and under the law.

    • Black Adder is truly a marvel of BBC .the high class acting of Rowan Atkinson was superb which probably made him a star. For the British history fans this drama gives an amazing blend of humor and historical fiction .
      Personally I liked Rome best , It was an intense historical drama by HBO.
      And thanks for following my blog
