Someone has a source for it? I thought it was the Orsis' conspiration that would be feartured in this DLC... --PhantomT1412 18:09, December 19, 2009 (UTC)
- Yeah, it was said in the video it was going to be the Orsis' conspiracy... -- D. Cello 04:53, December 20, 2009 (UTC)
- Then we can remove the Battle for Forli part? There is no reference at all...--PhantomT1412 10:51, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
Please expand the Biography. It lacks the third episode of Lineage and the Pazzi conspiration part of AC2.--PhantomT1412 18:44, December 19, 2009 (UTC)
What happens to rodrigo after his fight with ezio in 1499.
I believe after rodrigo got owned in the fight with ezio he became a depressed angry little man because he aparrently got robbed of his "Destiny".The reason he did not launch a campaign against ezio is because he's (quoting from lethal weapon) "Too old for this shit" in the fight he was 68 years old when he fought ezio and he lost the last bit of his ego after the fight. In 1503 he went to a dinner party with a cardinal called Adriano da Corneto he took his son cesare with him. Cesare wanted to poison adriano using the borgia family poison "Cantarella" he poisoned some food that he expected adriano to eat.However by shit luck Rodrigo ate some of the poisoned food and on august 6 he became ill.He had a slow and agonising death here is a historical account from the time about his death." Alexander VI's stomach became swollen and turned to liquid, while his face became wine-coloured and his skin began to peel off. Finally his stomach and bowels bled profusely. After more than a week of intestinal bleeding and convulsive fevers, and after accepting last rites and making a confession, the despairing Alexander VI died on 18 August 1503 at the age of 72. He is believed to have uttered the last words "Wait a minute" before his death." If you would like to know about the gruesome details of what happened at his funeral read his wikipedia entry at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Alexander_VI#Death.Andrew nicholson 18:38, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
- Someone please confirm the trivia bit about poisoning Rodrigo and handling the Staff. -- D. Cello 19:26, March 1, 2010 (UTC)
Do you think that Rodrigo secretly enjoyed the Assassin efforts to undermine Cesare, given that he didn't show much hatred for them before Cesare killed him and it was clear he was displeased with his over-ambitious son.
Master of the Templar Order
I believe the title "Grand Master of the Knights Templar" should not be used to describe Borgia. Officially, the Knights Templar collapsed in 1314, but the Templars continued their work. To be a Christian military order, you have to be Catholic and recognized by the papacy. The Templars were not, so after their "dissolution" in 1314, they would not have been the "Knights" Templar. Furthermore, "Grand Master" is the term for the leader of a military order, so after 1314, the leader of the templars would not have been a Grand Master. I think Mario Auditore coined the best phrase to describe Borgia. "Leader of the Templar Order".
Rodrigo Borgia as said above dies in 1503, August 18. He was pressumed to be accidentaly poisened by his son with Cantarella. Although the new game Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will take place in 1503, and will depict his death as a result of Ezio's work. Or maybe something related to his son. --CryGame--
In the Bonfire of the Vanities DLC, Savanarola is shown being "arrested" and burned by a civilian mob, as opposed to Rodrigo's men (as per the historical version). While Rodrigo may still have been responsible, it seems to me to be just as likely that the mob burned him, and Rodrigo just took credit, or some such thing. 18.104.22.168 23:15, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
That actually explains why the way Savanarola died wasn't as elaborate as real-world historical records show it was: Rodrigo was making it up to intimidate the enemies of the Borgia.22.214.171.124 09:14, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
i dont have the power nor the autority to nominate, but i feel it should at least be at good article status...thoughts? - Dop3man 80 17:02, August 17, 2011 (UTC)
Was Rodrigo based on his actor (voice actor)?
Calixtus III's real name was Alfonso de Borja, not Alonso. I've changed it twice and it keeps getting changed back.
- One thing I've learned from my professors: Never trust Wikipedia. I went to Pope Alexander's page and followed the source used, which comes from a Renaissance Encyclopedia. This states that he was known as Alonso de Borja or Alfonso Borgia, not Alfonso de Borja. Stormbeast ♉ The Helpful Place 05:18, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
The Space Pope
I made this kinda fake profile of Rodrigo, making it somewhat satirical of Keel Lorenz of Neon Genesis Evangelion and various modern day Catholic Church scandals, including those where, in Eric Cartman's words, the Pope helped pedophiles get away with their crimes.
