    About "Ivan Cloulas"

        Ivan Cloulas Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Borgias book, this is one of the most wanted Ivan Cloulas author readers around the world.


    1. This book focuses on the lives of Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia) and his illegitimate children, Cesare and Lucrezia. The author states in the introduction that his objective was to humanize the Borgias and relieve their reputations of the rumors and innuendos that have clung to them since the Renaissance.If that truly was the author's objective, he failed thoroughly to achieve it. The author exonerates Alexander VI of the most egregious single charge against him - that of incest with his dau [...]

    2. Excellent book. The author doesn't take a side in the Borgia love hate affair that many authors have - resulting in biased work. Cloulas is insightful, informative and takes you through the process to see where and how he comes to his conclusions when challenging/facing many of the myths about this family. Definitely worth a look if your into history.

    3. This book reads relatively easily for a history and presents lots of information which is, for the most part, easy to follow. Be prepared for many new names and a penchant of the author to skip ahead to make a point, then return to his narrative. Pay attention to the dates to keep yourself from getting mixed up by the, sometimes, non-chronological digressions of the author.I missed not having maps available to turn to, and while the Chronology is lengthy, it still did not answer all my questions [...]

    4. OK, I confess that I read it to get some idea how far "The Borgias" television series wanders from the truth. (Answer: VERY far!) It does a satisfactory job in the "just the facts" tradition, but even within those limits I have complaints: 1. No maps, no not one. A serious lack in a book that mentions many very minor places in both Italy and Spain. And unless you're a specialist in the era, you probably have, as I did, no more than a vague idea of the shifting boundaries of the duchies of Milan [...]

    5. Una lectura muy dinámica sobre una época muy variopinta en la historia de los Estados Pontificios. Se trata de un texto bien informado, que despeja varias dudas y desmitifica varios mitos de la familia Borgia (incluyendo negar varias mentiras asociadas a su nombre ellos ya eran lo bastante infames por sus acciones como para necesitar que asesinaran su imagen aún más con falsedades). Lo que sí es que el libro se habría beneficiado con algún mapa: dada la naturaleza de la política en las c [...]

    6. Pope Alexander VI, his children, Lucrece and Cesar (model for Machiavelli's THE PRINCE, - what to make of them? Were they the hopelessly corrupt villains that history has often made them out to be, or were they products of a tumultuous 16th century Renaissance and no better and no worse than most of their contemporaries? This historical study, written in French, guardedly finds elements of both villainy and contemporaneity in them. the author concentrates much more on the political and military [...]

    7. The lives of Rodrigo, Lucrezia, and Chez-array were absolutely riveting. I got a new perspective on the family. The huge number of characters, made for some confusion. I didn't know until I read this book that Machievelli's "The Prince" was based at least in part on the life of Cesare. I also did not know that Leonardo da Vinci did some engineering work for Cesare. The political and ecclesiastical intrigue of that time was almost unbelievable. What I found most amazing is that the records of tha [...]

    8. It was pretty interesting at first, but near the end I just got really bored with it. Nothing much else to say.

    9. Although there were some issues with the translation, I really enjoyed this book. The author handled an infamous family with remarkable delicacy, and gave us an unbiased look at their lives.
