Whilst his exact date of birth is unknown, the general consensus is that today in 1475, is Cesare Borgia’s birthday. The exact date was never recorded but we do know for definite that he was born sometime between September 1475 and April 1476 – so why 13th September was chosen, I don’t know. Still, on ‘this day’ in history, Cesare Borgia was born to Rodrigo Borgia and Vanozza Cattanei and would go on to become not only the first Cardinal to ever resign from the consistory, but also one of the greatest Warlords in Italy’s history.
