The purge of the College of Cardinals continues, it's latest victim being Cardinal Versucci. He accuses the Pope of lining his own pockets and proceeds to set the Vatican treasury on fire.Cesare travels to Naples to negotiate Lucrezia's marriage contract and also to see if they might be of help against Caterina Sforza. He finds people starving and is not impressed with his allies. The King of Naples claims to have an army of 10,000 but Cesare is not so easily duped. The contract is successfully negotiated but the King refuses to accept Lucrezia's child. The new French ambassador tells the Pope of the French King's unhappy marriage and Alexander sees the possibility of a new alliance. The King of Naples also sees the possibility of new allies and invites Caterina and the four major families to the wedding. Written by
