Do you mean BORGIAS? They were a familial dynasty in Italy. Try a Google or Altavista on Borgia.

I think you are referring to the less-than-holy Renaissance pope, Pope Alexander VI.

The Borgias.

Pope Alexander VI(1492-1503), one of the most notorious Popes in history is a member of this family. Cesare Borgia, who was idealized by Machiavelli in his book *the Prince, * was his son.

BUT…the same family actually also produced a saint!!! A distant cousin, I believe. I bet you could google him, too.
