Summary
The second son of Alfonso d'Este and Lucretia Borgia, the Duke and Duchess of Ferrara, Ippolito d'Este was made the archbishop of Milan at the age of nine. But from the time of his father's death in 1534, he set his ambitions on acquiring the powerful and coveted cardinal's hat. But one did not become a sixteenth century prince of the church through piety and good works. Ippolito had a taste for gambling and women. He enjoyed hunting in the Loir valley and pursued his ambition with money, schmoozing, and the dark arts of politics. Working with Ippolito's letters and ledgers, recently uncovered in an archive in Modena, Italy, Mary Hollingsworth has pieced together a fascinating and undeniably titillating tale of this Renaissance cardinal and his road to power and wealth in sixteenth century Europe. The ledgers document every aspect of Ippolito's comings, goings, purchases, and debts. Out of these finely detailed records, Hollingsworth brings to life not only Ippolito, but his world
