Caterina Maria Romula de Medici was born on April 13, 1519. Lorenzo II de Medici, Duke of Urbino,* died six days after her birth from syphilis and tuberculosis. Her mother, Madeleine de La Tour d’Auvergne, the daughter of a royal princess, passed away of complications 15 days after her birth. Orphaned, but quite valuable due to her royal blood and inheritance, Catherine was a central figure for control of the papacy and the throne. The Medici’s through careful marriage matches and taking control of the financial banking, rose to power as papal bankers after the Black Plague in 1348-49.

In 49 AD, Agrippina married her uncle, the emperor Claudius, and began to promote her own son's claim to the succession, at the expense of Claudius's own son, Britannicus.

Agrippina clearly wished to rule through Nero, and her portrait briefly appeared on the coins alongside his. But the new emperor paid more heed to his advisors Burrus and the philosopher Seneca, and the result was five years of exemplary government. Britannicus was poisoned by Nero a year into the new reign and in 59 AD,

For example, Alexander VI was a Borgia who gained his position by bribing of the College of Cardinals. He fathered many illegitimate children, one of whom he appointed a cardinal along with 46 others. Alexander’s daughter, Lucrezia, had an immense dowry worth 157 000, paid for by taxes. The Pope also had power to excommunicate people who disobeyed him, form laws and increase taxation. If the integrity of the Pope is lost then the Church gets a bad reputation.

They decided to get married after their “love fest” in the garden, and this is where their adventure began. The first archetype I have chosen for Romeo was a rebel. Romeo fits this archetype because he is inclined to resist authority and the authority that he is going against is his families’ laws. Romeo is courting Juliet discreetly behind their families back.
