A Cesare Borgia GIVEAWAY

On 12 March 1507, Cesare Borgia was killed just outside Viana in Navarre. So to commemorate his passing, I’m giving away one signed copy of my book, “Cesare Borgia in a Nutshell”


To be in with a chance of winning, subscribe (or be subscribed already) to my blog using the ‘follow’ button at the bottom of the page (shown below with the really faint red arrow)


Then leave a comment below with just why you’d like a copy of the book.

I’ll also send you a bunch of ‘Cesare Borgia In A Nutshell’ bookmarks!

You’ve got until Friday 23rd March! Go go go!

  1. I would like a signed book for many reasons:
    1. There is no greater time period to learn about and study. Dare I say it, to want to have lived in.
    2. I don’t know of a more interactive author in my experience of book reading.

  2. Pick me pick me please! I began studying everything I could get my hands on about Rome to make something good come from a trip to Italy which ended up being a terrible tragic trip. In all my studies I was most interested in Cesare Borgia and have been reading everything I can get my hands on. I fly to Rome on Friday, March 16th and am going to make this trip much better and this time I know more about the history, the beauty and would just love it if I won this signed book from you! 💕💕

  3. I think I should get a copy of your book, because I’ve been a Borgia fan since I was a little girl and fascinated not only by Renaissance, but particularly the Borgia as a family, and watched and read everything that was available. When rediscovering new research and fiction led me to watching the two recent series, I stumbled over your blog and have kept reading it as well as following you on Facebook. So your book would add to my obsession and collection 😀
    I’ve always been a history fan, later studied Archaeology (of the Roman provinces) and Art History (concentrating on contemporary Art). I’ve been working in art for many years now, but an so glad to return to History and start a PhD in Cultural History in a few months.
    If all of this doesn’t convince you, I have another string in my bow: 23rd March is in fact my birthday, so imagine me finding out about this special birthday gift once the competition is closed 🙂
    All the best

  4. I’m a student of ancient history at university and while I focus mainly on the Middle East, one of the areas that interest me is the Italian Renaissance. I studied it for my a-level in history and the Borgias are one subject which fascinated me.
    Having a book on Cesare would be fabulous!
    I also named my first cactus after him which was ironic considering his name meant ‘hairy’ and is an Italian version of ‘Caesar’.

  6. I love reading about the Borgia family. I began learning about them as a teen when doing research on my Italian family’s history and found them to be fascinating.

  7. I’ve been obsessed about the Borgia since grade school, after a long few years after high school as a drug addict I finally kicked the habit and am back in college for a degree in European history from American Public University. If I won I would read the book over and over until the binding is worn out.
    Thanks for any consideration

  8. It’s a very interesting time period that I’d like to learn a bit more about. It’s one of the gaps in my knowledge. I read a lot about medieval history, and then I’ve read some on the Reformation, but the Renaissance has been somewhat neglected. Heh.

  9. Currently I am deep in a book called “The Rival Queens” about Catherine di Medici and her daughter Marguerite of Valois. I love history…Italy is on my list of places to visit…last summer I did the UK and northern France…got to see all of my dead people….Elizabeth I, Mary Tudor, Mary Queen of Scots, Henry VIII & Jane Seymour, etc. Two awesome trips…mostly I brought back books! Anyway I find all European history fascinating and would love a book on Cesare!
