Pope Alexander VI gives his son Cesare Borgia as hostage to Charles VIII of France. Alexander VI is one of the most controversial popes of the Renaissance era.

The Italianized form of his surname, Borgia, becomes a byword for the debased standards and debauchery of the Catholic Church during this time.
