While the Pope schemes to destroy his foes, his mistress Giulia Farnese (Lotte Verbeek) realizes her position in the bedroom is precarious at best; daughter Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) seduces new suitors while caring for her illicit baby; and brothers Cesare (Francois Arnaud) and Juan (David Oakes) take sibling rivalry to a whole new level of deviancy.

Passionate, sumptuous and undeniably addictive, it's an unmissable chapter in the sage of one of the most powerful families the world has ever known.
