________________________________________________

Caterina Sforza, born 1463, was an Italian noblewoman who was a contemporary of Lucrezia Borgia-- and an avowed foe of the deadly Cesere Borgia. Though born illegitimately, she nonetheless rose in rank and was respected and feared as the Countess of Forlì.

Caterina was bright and beautiful, well educated, and loved dancing, hunting, and the arcane art of alchemy. She was a proficient leader in times of war, marching on and capturing castles when her husband was away.  Once, her children were captured, and their captors sent word that if she did not surrender the castle she occupied, they would be killed. Reportedly, she took to the battlements, hoisted her skirts to show them her bits, and told them that she could make more. They were so shocked, they released her children.

Late in her life, when speaking to a monk, she confessed,"If I could write everything that happened, I would shock the world!"
