Tigress of Forlì is a biography of the fascinating life of Caterina Sforza, one of the Renaissance’s most iconic Italian women. After 8 children, 3 buried husbands, one painting of her by Botticelli, one feud with Machiavelli, and a commemoration from Pope Sixtus IV, the long time defender of her city-state was defeated & imprisoned by Cesare Borgia. In a real-life story akin to Game of Thrones, Sforza’s life is brought into sharp relief against history, her legacy and her descendants — two Dukes of Tuscany, a queen of France, and a queen of England — shaping the future history of Europe in unforeseen ways.
