This article is about the personal doctor of Cesare Borgia. For other uses, see Gaspar.

Gaspar Torella was an Spanish physician who lived in Rome during the Renaissance and served the Borgia family as Cesare Borgia's personal doctor.[1]

Biography[]

In 1503, after Rodrigo Borgia was killed by the cantarella poison he sought to use to murder Cesare, Gaspar was responsible for treating Cesare of his serious poisoning. Even though Cesare had taken a preventative antidote, what little poison he had ingested was potent enough to require Gaspar's continued presence at a logistics meeting in Cesare's palace near the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere. There, he tended to the Captain General as his officers discussed the threat of the Assassins, before Ezio Auditore ambushed the room with his Apple of Eden. Though the Assassin Mentor killed the lieutenants, Cesare and Gaspar managed to escape.[1]

After Cesare's imprisonment by Pope Julius II, Ezio and his friend Leonardo da Vinci visited Gaspar at his house to question him on Cesare's whereabouts. The doctor swore he knew know nothing Ezio hadn't heard before and insisted that he was more interested in studying the "French Disease", i.e. syphilis, than finding Cesare, though he did mention Ezio could do worse than looking in Spain. After this, Ezio and Leonardo left the doctor without further issue.[1]
