“Roderigo Borgia had the reputation of a dissolute man. For the Romans there was nothing new in the singular situation of a pope with a mistress and five children. The great thing for the moment was that the power fell into strong hands; and it was more important for the tranquillity of Rome that the new pope inherited the sword of St. Paul than that he inherited the keys of St. Peter”.

Alexandre Dumas selected some of the most famous crimes and criminals from European history and described facts and protagonists with a particular attention to curious details and historical documents.

This collection includes all the eight volumes written from 1839 to 1841 by Alexandre Dumas (père) in his Celebrated Crimes, composed of eight distinct books.

This book was not written for children. The novelist has spared no language — has minced no words — to describe the violent scenes of a violent time.
