….. one thing that’s obvious from the historical record is that cesare loved lucrezia best. out of his family, out of rodrigo and vanozza and juan, even above himself, in a lot of ways.
… he was actually incapable of having deep and meaningful relationships with anyone or having profound affection for anyone, even his father and brothers, except for lucrezia. she was actually the exception to his every rule. he loved her, and that love never faded, nor hers for him.
also in actual history:he turned an entire army around for her
this was years later. she was sick after giving birth and cesare was hounded on all sides by french demands and he turned an army around for her. he literally just up and left, so that he could go to ferrara and hold her foot and make her laugh for a few hours before he left again. and by the accounts of that event, the ‘duke was the only one to make her laugh’, and persuaded her to let them bleed her. and this, let’s remember, is a man who is persistent and determined, by whichever means necessary to gain a fortune for himself, a kingdom by the time he was 31, because he knew he was going to die young. and time, to him was the most precious thing. and he spent it on his sister at a critical time in his career, where he could fail spectacularly, and he took the time out for her.
after cesare’s death, his sword emblazoned with spqr (ALL MY ROMAN PARALLEL FEELINGS) was sent to lucrezia, and she literally barred herself in her room after proclaiming that the ‘more i adhere to god, the more he tries me’. and for days later they could hear her calling his name in her room.
oh god. tears.
