Cesare Borgia

Cesare Borgia was born in Rome on September 13th, 1475; the son of Cardinal Rodrigo de Lanzol y Borgia, soon to become Pope Alexander VI, and his mistress Vanozza dei Cattanei. He was made Bishop of Pamplona at the age of 15. Following school in Perugia and Pisa where Cesare studied law, along with his father's elevation to Pope, Cesare was made Cardinal three years later. After his brother Juan's death, Cesare became the first person in history to resign the cardinalate. On the same day the French King Louis XII named Cesare Duke of Valentinois, and this title, along with his former position as Cardinal of Valencia, explains the nickname "Valentino". Cesare's military career was founded upon his father's ability to distribute patronage, along with his alliance with France (reinforced by his marriage with Charlotte d'Albret, sister of John III of Navarre), in the course of the Italian Wars. At the time of his father's death in 1503, Cesare's dominons in the Romagna disintegrated without continued Papal support. In order to smooth the way to his election as pope, Giuliano Della Rovere - later Pope Julius II - made an agreement with Cesare, promising to make him captain of the papal troops again. After the conclave, Cesare surrendered the Castel Sant' Angelo and came to live with Della Rovere in the Vatican. The pope toyed with the idea of using Cesare to stem the Venetians in the Romagna, for he could still attract loyalty not only from the Spanish but also, to some degree, from the people of the province. However, the Venetians claimed that all they were doing was taking the lands of their common enemy, Cesare Boriga. Hence, Julius II asked Cesare for the countersigns of the fortresses that he held (Cesena, Bertinoro and Forlì). In return Cesare received a brief saying that he could go where he liked once the cities had been surrendered. He went to Naples and begun to try to recruit troops but when the Spanish monarchs heard of this they ordered their viceroy Gonsalvo to arrest Cesare. Exiled to Spain in 1504, he was imprisoned in the Castle of La Mota, Medina del Campo, from which he escaped and joined his brother-in-law King John III of Navarre. Subsequently, Cesare was killed in 1507 while fighting for the Navarrese king in the city of Viana, Spain.

In "The Prince", Machiavelli uses Cesare Borgia as an example to elucidate the dangers of acquiring a principality by virtue of another. Cesare also inspired many novels and was portrayed in many movies and television series based on the Borgia's rise and fall. For instance most recently:


The Borgias (TV, 2011) played by François Arnaud
Borgia (TV, 2011) played by Mark Ryder
Los Borgia (Movie, 2006) played by Sergio Peris-Mencheta
The Borgias (TV, 1981) played by Oliver Cotton

thanks for the links.

here's another trailer for season 2:



Quote:
OMG, was that Creek in the promo? Does Manfred kill her while he's possessed?
yep that's Creek in the promos...even though she will no longer be a series regular next season but I think she'll still make a guest appearance in 1 episode or so, she'd probably just be in the season premiere. As for whether a possessed Manfred is going to kill her or not I don't know...I remember during an interview with the cast at SDCC earlier this year, Francois mentioned that Creek wanted to be more than just a waitress in a small town, he seemed to imply that Creek will just move away and start a new life somewhere else. But now with the release of the new trailers for S2 that seem to imply that a possessed Manfred might kill her, I don't know anymore. Btw in one of the pics posted in the old thread with the woman lying on the ground and Manfred standing over her is actually Olivia not Creek, but I doubt Manfred would kill Olivia, I can't imagine Manfred killing anyone...then again based on the trailers it looks like he'd be struggling with the aftermath of his demonic possession from the S1 finale, so who knows what a demonically possessed Manfred would do.

Here's an interview from NYCC (and Part 2 should follow on):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pql5yWKSM20

I seem to be just posting links which doesn't help the conversation along. Sorry.

In the Build cast interview, François mentioned "channeling Jack Nicholson" and that was exactly my thought when I saw one of the promo photos for episode 1. I'm looking forward to seeing him play evil.

...and here's yet another one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lm8WXcaHPVI

(I'm working on something really boring which is my excuse for checking for updates)

Hi, Linda! Thanks for the trailer! I guess they couldn't just write Creek out and have her disappear without explanation, so they're having her come back briefly. I wonder how the actress felt about that. It would be really sad if Manfred was the one who killed her. And I agree, I don't think the show is gonna kill Olivia.

Hi, Anticipation! No, don't apologize. You're helping the conversation along every time you post. You're giving us videos and links to talk about, so no worries.

Sorry you're working on some boring stuff.

Thanks for the NYCC videos!

Well Olivia is a fan favourite so there's no way they'd kill her off and she's still a main character in S2 so obviously she'll be ok. And as much as I dislike Creek and don't really care whether she dies or not, but it would be sad if Manfred were to kill her, for him to kill his own girlfriend would be too cruel for him, even if he was possessed, so I don't think they'd do that. I think Creek will more likely just move away, maybe she will realise that Manfred is possessed by demonic spirits and can't handle it so she breaks up with him and leaves Midnight, I think that would be the most ideal scenario.

In several of the NYCC interviews François says that Creek will be coming back from time to time during the series. Of course, given that Manfred sees the dead, that doesn't rule out him murdering her. Leaving town to study seems more likely, though.

Hi, Anticipation! I see, that's an interesting idea for Creek to come back as a ghost, or if she's just leaving town, like you said. I guess this means that there's no issues with the actress if she's willing to return as a guest star?

Hi, Linda! Yeah, I don't think that Manfred really needs that on his conscience. Creek probably will just leave town I guess, but we'll have to wait and see. No, they're not gonna kill off Olivia.

Shame that Francois is all the way in the back. He's the most famous person on the show, and the main character, you know.

He does seem to hold back in those group interviews. Perhaps he needs a publicist to push him to the front.

Meanwhile, here's a new 30 second promo video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=refpgwrIGWM
