Cesare calls on Machiavelli to learn what Florence might do if he were to take Forli. He says Florence will do nothing. He teaches Cesare that the perfect crime is one in which there is no suspect - as in the case of Juan Borgia. Such a man, he says, would make a great prince. Pope Alexander muses about the possibility of making the papacy hereditary. He will need a kingdom however to make that happened. Cesare marches his army from Rome to Forli but Caterina Sforza is caught unprepared when Cesare's French army arrives from Milan. Cesare races to Forli and finds that Micheletto has returned with information on how to breech the castle's 12 feet thick walls. He soon turns his sights on Naples but must eliminate one obstacle that is in his way. Written by
