Summary: In Season 1, Rodrigo schemes and bribes his way to the papacy and ascends to the throne as Pope Alexander VI in 1492, then uses his cunning son Cesare and the family's new assassin Micheletto to secure his power; Rodrigo forges strategic alliances by offering the hands of his daughter Lucrezia and his son Joffre in marriage to rival aristocrats; the Borgias' mortal enemy Cardinal Della Rovere wields his influence to persuade King Charles of France to invade Italy and depose the corrupt Pope. But Alexander persuades the French King to spare him (and Rome) and instead head south for the Kingdom of Naples.
