characters The Tigress of Forli 107 Borgia family she put up a resistance that inspired all of Europe and set the stage for her progeny including Cosimo de Medici to follow her example to greatness     A rich evocation of Renaissance life The Tigress of Forli reveals Caterina Riario Sforza as a brilliant and fearless ruler and a tragic but unbowed figu. Caterina Riario Sforza de Medici was a fascinating woman beautiful and accomplished in the things people expected of a woman a fertile and involved mother a military tactician as capable of fighting as any of her men an indomitable spirit who rightly captured the hearts and imaginations of many of her time She had formidable enemies and allies who let her down all too often she perhaps deserved the former but not the latterFeminism gone wild one of the reviewers uoted on the cover of my edition says I expected to bristle at this to be annoyed that a given the usual position of women in the time any agency given to women would be shocking compared to that we have now and b feminism gone wild manages to encapsulate condescension and that I m not a feminist reasoning that seems to have overtaken many women But Caterina would make a surprisingly good role model for women long after her own age and she promoted the interests of women personally through arranging marriages for women whose families could or would not and publicly through preventing the sack of towns and therefore the rape of the inhabitantsThis biography is pretty even handed though obviously very much sympathetic to Caterina It includes criticisms of her behaviour as well as noting her heroism at other times My main criticism is that I was often unsure of the sources for Lev s information a balance does have to be struck between including dubious information and asking the reader to trust that the biographer s judgement is perfectI got interested in Caterina Sforza through playing the Assassin s Creed games and I recommend this to anyone who played the games It might be drier but it reveals a character even compelling than the glimpses we saw of Ezio s ally in the games
