Cardinal Della Rovere travels to Naples in the hope of gaining allies against the Borgia Pope. He finds the Neapolitan Prince Alfonso to be quite ruthless. The Pope and his son Cesare, now a Cardinal in his own right, plot their own future and Cesare dispatches his assassin to get rid of Della Rovere. The Pope decides to offer a home to the Jews who have recently been expelled from Spain. His price will be high, however. He also allows diplomatic relations with Islamic Constantinople - again for a princely sum, 40,000 ducats. Lucretia's parents agree that the girl must be married but the Pope decides that the marriage should be such as to protect them all. A marriage to the prince of Naples would be ideal but there are many suitors all with their own proposals. The Pope is concerned with Lucretia's more than passing interest in a young Muslim boy. Cesare and his younger brother Juan are tasked to resolve those concerns. Written by garykmcd
