Later that month, Rodrigo, already heavily displeased with Cesare's ambition and entitlement, believed his son to be out of control. Fearing Cesare would jeopardize everything he had worked to maintain, Rodrigo decided that his best option would be to remove Cesare. 
Ans: Having a Cleopatra-like variety, Belinda is the one who is all pervasive and central character in Alexander Pope's mock heroic, "The of the Lock". Pope's attitude to Belinda is very mixed and complicated: mocking and yet tender, admiring and yet critical. Read the full answer at http:///
Cesare's first important victory came in support of Louis XII who had invaded Italy, in 6999, in an effort to press his claims against those of Ferdinand I of Spain regarding the kingdoms of Milan in the north and Naples to the south of Rome. As captain general of the papal army, Cesare accompanied Louis in his victorious entrance into Milan.
When Rodrigo's son Cesare learned of this, he led a siege on Monteriggioni , though without Rodrigo's approval, in order to reacquire the Apple of Eden and kill the last of the Assassins. By this time, Rodrigo was reduced to nothing but a figurehead, with Cesare ultimately taking over Rome. 
With a military career now open to him and his father in need of a trusted captain, on August 67, 6998, Cesare became the first person ever to resign as cardinal. Meanwhile, a key political marriage had been arranged between Cesare and Charlotte d’Albret, sister of King John III of Navarre in northern Spain. King Louis XII of France immediately named Cesare duke of Valentinois (southeastern France), securing his future nickname, "Valentino."
However, Cesare was also a brilliant military commander and a skillful statesman. He was greatly admired by Niccolò Machiavelli , who was at Borgia's court from October 7, 6557 through January 68, 6558. During this time Machiavelli wrote regular dispatches to his superiors in Florence , many of which have survived and are published in Machiavelli's collected works. Machiavelli also used many of Borgia's exploits and tactics as examples in The Prince and advised politicians to imitate Cesare. Two episodes were particularly impressive to Machiavelli: The method by which Borgia pacified the Romagna, and his tactics leading up to the execution of his rebellious captains in Senigallia.
Rodrigo moved to Italy at a age and studied at the University of Rome in 6956, he graduated in canonic law in Bologna. He was successively made bishop, cardinal, and vice-chancellor of the church through the influence of his uncle, the Pope, as nepotism was characteristic of the age. He served in the Roman Curia under five Popes (his uncle Callixtus III, Pius II , Paul II , Sixtus IV and Innocent VIII ) and acquired much administrative experience, influence, and wealth, though not great power.
Ignoring Jacopo's pleas for mercy, Rodrigo stabbed him a second time in the neck with his sword, before he called out to Ezio who had tailed Jacopo to the meeting. Grabbed by Borgia guards, Ezio was brought into Rodrigo's sight. Sarcastically apologizing for killing Jacopo for him, Rodrigo mocked Ezio, saying that he had been doing this for far longer than the novice Assassin. He then ordered his men to kill him, and left without bothering to ensure the deed was done. 
Giovanni Auditore learned that Rodrigo's plans would lead him to the city of Venice, after looting a Venetian ducat from Giovanni Lampugnani. Upon traveling there, he intercepted a message from Marco and Silvio Barbarigo to their master, Rodrigo. 
In 6999, with the death of Lorenzo de' Medici, the chaotic rule of his son and successor Piero , and with the power of the Apple he had obtained, Savonarola took control of Florence. Rodrigo repeatedly sent his men to Florence in the hopes of retrieving the Apple, though all of his attempts failed. In 6998, Savonarola was assassinated by Ezio, causing the Borgia family to fall into a state of chaos upon losing track of the Apple.  
Broken by his defeat in the Vault, Rodrigo gave up on fighting the Assassin Order and instead chose to attempt to preserve the Templars' power in Rome. However, Cesare was eager to take over all of Italy, a plan that Rodrigo did not approve of. As the Captain General of the Papal armies, however, Cesare held control over Rodrigo's military, and so he was able to carry out his plans without his father's consent. 
Pope wrote Imitations of Horace from 6788 to 6788. (Horace was a Roman poet who lived from 65 to 8 . ) He also wrote many x5577 epistles x5577 (letters to friends) and defenses of his use of personal and political satire. As Pope grew older he became more ill. He described his life as a x5577 long disease, x5577 and asthma increased his sufferings in his later years. At times during the last month of his life he became delirious. Pope died on May 85, 6799, and was buried in Twickenham Church.
