Goofs

The show depicts Giuliano de Medici's son as being the illegitimate result of a one night stand, with Giuliano only discovering he was to be a father as he lay dying. In reality, Giuliano's son, the future Pope Clement VII, was born only a month after Giuliano died. His parents were considered to have been betrothed and so Giuliano's son was considered legitimate.

Another interesting TV series!
20 April 2013 | by adambbqSee all my reviews

When I watched the trailer of "Da Vinci's Demons" I knew that this title will provide us with a lot of entertainment and action, but only a few historical facts. After watching the first episodes I can confirm this opinion. People searching for the real historical events from the biography of Leonardo certainly will be disappointed. However, those who like me are looking for a breath of freshness and ingenuity consider this TV series to be very successful. First of all, we have the opportunity to see the extraordinary genius inventions come to life and I have to admit that they do so in spectacular way. The story has been enriched by the threads of intrigue and romance that give the history extra flavor. Those critical of this form I refer to historical films, but fans of entertainment at a good level, I encourage to familiarize yourself with this title. Acting is on a really decent level, sound and video as well. Therefore, if anyone is interested in alternative history of Leonardo da Vinci, which is very colorful and creative, or just looking for good entertainment will find this series to be extremely successful.
