The rich and powerful Cardinal Della Rovere is Rodrigo Borgia's chief rival for the papacy. When he is passed over for selection, Della Rovere devotes himself to unseating the Pope, whom he sees as lewd, blasphemous, and his vast moral inferior. But Della Rovere becomes so obsessed with his quest that lowers himself to the Borgias' level to achieve his goal. Della Rovere's scheming is not lost on Alexander and Cesare, who redouble their efforts to take him down permanently.
