So according to the wiki page, the real Rodrigo Borgia also known as Pope Alexander VI, died a gruesome bloody death at the age of, get ready for it...72!!! Someone besides me must find this interesting.

From illness suggestive of poisoning, I believe. I think Cesare also fell ill at the same time.

But yea, 72... that's either a major coincidence, or someone is very clever!

yes apparently, they fell ill after a dinner they had with another party, not sure who. But Cesare didn't die until the seige of a spanish town. In another thread I read that he died from a fall like in ACB but I haven't found any information to support that. Everything I've read simply says he died, no cause is mentioned.

All I can say for sure is that we need more then a Wiki page as a resource to find out anything close to the real truth http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I made sure to go to as many sources as possible. I never use wikipedia as my main source of information.

I try not to use wiki for more obscure stuff. I'm pretty sure it's ok for things there's lots of information on, but it's hard to find a source for the more obscure stuff. If anyone finds a link as to how exactly Cesare died (I read it in the thread too), do let me know!
