Tigress Of Forli: The Life of Caterina Sforzaby Elizabeth Lev

Botticelli painted her, Machiavelli slandered her. She led troops into battle, married a Medici, and was imprisoned by the Borgias. Between her birth in 1463 as the illegitimate daughter of the Duke of Milan, to her death in 1509 as a member of the powerful Medici family, Caterina Sforza's life crossed the firmament of Italy's High Renaissance like a shooting star.

Elizabeth Lev is an art historian living in Rome, where she teaches Baroque and Renaissance Art.

'Warring kingdoms, feuding cousins, corrupt popes and hapless husbands and lovers. Caterina's tale is as action-packed as Game of Thrones' New York Times

'A tale of murder, childhood marriage, revenge, rape, accession to power by a Florentine woman, and a violent downfall. Lev offers a rich, nuanced portrait of a highly controversial beauty and military leader' Publishers Weekly

'a triumph' Spectator

'A swirling vortex of alliances, grudges and revenge' New York Journal of Books
