Added DiffLines:

* BadassGay: Micheletto is basically in Cesare's employ to torture or assassinate anyone who are an inconvenience to him. He definitely turns this trope UpToEleven.

* ThePrince: Niccolo Machiavelli's hugely important political text was written, in part, in reaction to his encounters with Cesare when he was serving as Florentine diplomat. He shows up in "Lucrezia's Wedding" and tends to serve as Cesare's ''[[TheConsigliere consigliere]]''.

** The presence of Machiavelli is an example too; the time frame isn't very clear after the 1492 title in the pilot episode, but most of the events depicted took place between 1492 and 1496 in real life. Machiavelli was elected head of the Second Chancery in 1498 and didn't hold any political position in Florence before that. Then again, the show seems to be under the impression that he worked for the Medici, so the year alone isn't the only bit of artistic license (in reality they were his arch enemies who had him imprisoned and tortured-many think he wrote his infamous book ''ThePrince'' in part as veiled criticism of them).

** Isabella d'Este, wife of Francesco Gonzaga, was one of the most important women of Renaissance and even defined "The First Lady of the world". She was, however, cut out and in her place there is the fictional Bianca Gonzaga. As Leonardo, Isabella was connected to the Borgia: she later became Lucrezia's sister in law, and Lucrezia had a relationship with Isabella's husband.

** There's also Caterina Sforza's Harris hawk. Harris hawks are a North American species, and weren't brought to Europe until long after the time period of the series (whatever it is.)
