The "black legend of the Borgia" assures that the ascent to the papal throne of Rodrigo Borgia unleashed general disgust in the population
On August 6, 1502, Alexander VI and his son, César Borgia, held a banquet at the country residence of Cardinal Adriano da Corneto, in the company of other diners. Several days later they all fell seriously ill; Caesar's youth allowed him to overcome the disease, but Pope Alexander passed away
