520    The illegitimate daughter of Pope Julius II, Felice della 
       Rovere became one of the most powerful and accomplished 
       women of the Italian Renaissance. Now, Caroline Murphy 
       vividly captures the untold story of a rare woman who 
       moved with confidence through a world of popes and 
       princes.; Using a wide variety of sources, including 
       Felice's personal correspondence, as well as diaries, 
       account books, and chronicles of Renaissance Rome, Murphy 
       skilfully weaves a compelling portrait of this remarkable 
       woman. Felice della Rovere was to witness Michelangelo 
       paint the Sistine Chapel, watch her father Pope Julius II 
       lay the foundation stone for the new Saint Peter's, and 
       see herself immortalized by Raphael in his Vatican 
       frescos. With her marriage to Gian Giordano Orsini - 
       arranged, though not attended, by her father the Pope - 
       she came to possess great wealth and power, assets which 
       she turned to her advantage. While her father lived, 
       Felice exercised much influence in the affairs of Rome - 
       even negotiating for peace with the Queen of France - and 
       after his death, Felice persevered, making allies of the 
       cardinals and clerics of St. Peter's and maintaining her 
       control of the Orsini land through tenacity, ingenuity, 
       and carefully cultivated political savvy. She survived the
       Sack of Rome in 1527, but her greatest enemy proved to be 
       her own stepson Napoleone. The rivalry between him and her
       son Girolamo had a sudden and violent end, and brought her
       perilously close to losing e; With a marvelous cast of 
       characters, this is a spellbinding biography set against 
       the brilliant backdrop of Renaissance Rome.
