The Borgias’ son, Rodrigo, worked his way up the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church, eventually becoming the pope. The Borgia family were also represented by Angela Molina, Maria Valverde, and Katy Louise Saunders.
The Borgias is a period drama that lasted for three seasons on Showtime. Although it was not perfect, it was still a compelling and visually stunning historical drama.
