Historical notesEdit

  • Caterina Sforza's eldest son's name was Ottaviano, not Benito. None of her sons were named Benito.[1]
  • The incident of Caterina's eldest son being held hostage occurred in 1488 after the murder of her first husband, Giralomo Riario. Eye witness accounts differ as to whether or not she hiked her skirt, showing her genitals and saying she could always make more kids.[1]
