Summary
"From Leonie Frieda, critically acclaimed biographer of Catherine de Medici, comes The Deadly Sisterhood : an epic tale of eight women whose lives -- marked by fortune and poverty, power and powerlessness -- encompass the spectacle, opportunity, and depravity of Italy's Renaissance. Lucrezia Turnabuoni, Clarice Orsini, Beatrice d'Este, Isabella d'Este, Caterina Sforza, Giulia Farnese, Isabella d'Aragona, and Lucrezia Borgia shared the riches of their birthright : wealth, political influence, and friendship, but none were not exempt from personal tragedies, exile, and poverty. With riveting narrative, Leonie Frieda's The Deadly Sisterhood : A Story of Women, Power, and Intrigue in the Italian Renaissance, 1427-1527 brings to life a long-gone era filled with intrigue, corruption, and passion."--Publisher's description
Summary
Tells the story of the famous and infamous women of the late Italian Renaissance, tied together by political marriages and bloodlines, and reassesses the reputations of such celebrated figures as Isabella d'Este and Lucrezia Borgia
