Description:

Three episodes in the life of Cesare Borgia.

With all the pomp and ceremony of medieval Italy as a colourful backdrop, Sabatini masterfully recreates the political intrigue and misguided loyalties that reigned as the ‘Banner of the Bull’ waved victoriously over the land. Weaving deft descriptions and spirited characterisations into historical events, this is the remarkable story of the notorious Cesare Borgia from the point of view of 'The Urbinian; The Peruguian; and The Venetian'.

Rafael Sabatini (29 April 1875 – 13 February 1950) was an Italian/English writer of novels of romance and adventure.

He is best known for his worldwide best-sellers:

The Sea Hawk (1915), a tale of an Elizabethan Englishman among the pirates of the Barbary Coast

Scaramouche (1921), a tale of the French Revolution in which a fugitive hides out in a commedia dell'arte troupe and later becomes a fencing master (Sabatini wrote a sequel ten years later: Scaramouche the Kingmaker (1931))

Captain Blood (a.k.a. The Odyssey of Captain Blood) (1922), in which the title character is admiral of a fleet of pirate ships. (Sabatini wrote two additional Captain Blood books comprising short stories, but they are not sequels: The Chronicles of Captain Blood (a.k.a. Captain Blood Returns) (1931), and The Fortunes of Captain Blood (1936))[2]

Bellarion the Fortunate (1926), about a cunning young man who finds himself immersed in the politics of fifteenth-century Italy

In all, Sabatini produced 31 novels, eight short story collections, six non-fiction books, numerous uncollected short stories, and a play.--Wikipedia.
