―Lucrezia Borgia[src]

Lucrezia Borgia is a main character in the first, second and third seasons. She is portrayed by Holliday Grainger, and makes her debut in the series premiere.

Lucrezia is the third child and only daughter of Rodrigo Borgia and Vanozza Cattaneo. She is the sister of Cesare Borgia, Juan Borgia and Joffre Borgia, and the mother of Giovanni Borgia. She was married to Giovanni Sforza, but after his family denied the Borgia family their military powers during Charles VIII invasion of Rome, Lucrezia's father had the marriage annuled. Lucrezia had an affair with a stable boy named Paolo during her first marriage, and got pregnant with a son she named Giovanni Borgia.

InformationEdit

Season oneEdit

A beautiful young girl who is also wise beyond her years, Lucrezia is the apple of her father's eye. However, this does not prevent him from marrying her off at the earliest opportunity to Giovanni Sforza, a loutish brute whose family rules the powerful city-state of Milan. After becoming pregnant from an amorous affair with the Sforza stable boy, Paolo, Lucrezia flees home to Rome and convinces her father to annul the marriage and publicly humiliate Sforza.[2]

Season twoEdit

After a disastrous arranged marriage ended in annulment, scandal, and an illegitimate son fathered by a stable boy, Lucrezia is determined to have control over her own destiny, much to her father's dismay. She rejects suitor after suitor, but finally settles on Alfonso of Aragon (with her father's approval).[3]
