Giulia Farnese is the mistress of Rodrigo Borgia, and a close friend of Lucrezia Borgia.


Season oneEdit

The ravishing temptress who comes to the Pope seeking redemption and ends up in his bed, Giulia quickly uses her new vaunted position to amass power and influence of her own. She befriends Lucrezia and shares her opinions with the Pope,[1] thereby alienating Vanozza and driving a wedge straight through the heart of the Borgia family. But Giulia proves her worth when she rescues Lucrezia from the hands of her abusive husband.[2][3]

Season twoEdit

She befriends Lucrezia and ultimately even Vanozza. She uses these alliances to help establish and strengthen the church's charitable works, a deed that will secure the Pope's legacy.[4]
