The Deadly Sisterhood: A Story of Women, Power, and Intrigue in the Italian Renaissance, 1427-1527
About the Book
From Leonie Frieda, critically acclaimed biographer of Catherine de Medici, comes THE DEADLY SISTERHOOD: an epic tale of eight women whose lives --- marked by fortune and poverty, power and powerlessness --- encompass the spectacle, opportunity and depravity of Italy’s Renaissance.
Lucrezia Turnabuoni, Clarice Orsini, Beatrice d’Este, Isabella d’Este, Caterina Sforza, Giulia Farnese, Isabella d’Aragona and Lucrezia Borgia shared the riches of their birthright: wealth, political influence and friendship, but none were not exempt from personal tragedies, exile and poverty.
With riveting narrative, Leonie Frieda’s THE DEADLY SISTERHOOD: A Story of Women, Power, and Intrigue in the Italian Renaissance, 1427–1527 brings to life a long-gone era filled with intrigue, corruption and passion.
