As the head of the papal armies, favored son Juan is filled with swagger and bravado, but he is really a hopelessly inept coward. More interested in the brothels and taverns of Rome than with defending his family, Juan nonetheless resents that his brother Cesare is the more apt warrior son. Juan leads the pathetic Papal guard into battle against the far superior French forces, and only avoids slaughter when his sister Lucrezia convinces the French king to spare them.
Juan's ineptitude on the battlefield and misplaced familial pride lead to his extreme alienation from his furious and disgusted siblings, and ultimately to an untimely fate.

- Juan never besieged Forli and Ravaldino castle. The city of Forli was taken and Ravaldino besieged by Cesare Borgia in December and January of 1499. (The new year of 1500 did not start until March prior to the adoption of the Gregorian calendar many decades later.)
