CesareBorgia was a villain who did whatever he could to become a leader in themilitary. “Either Caesar or Nothing” was the motto that he lived by. Hebasically used this to say that things will be his way and people had no choicein the matter. Cesare is responsible for a lot of political killings butthe crime of which he is known for was the murder of his brother-in-law Alfonso. Itseems likely that this was for personal reasons because he hated his brother inlaw rather than for political reasons. Because he did this many people fearedhim and he was known for being ruthless. It was known by manypeople that Cesare had been very jealous of his brother.
His brother was mysteriously murdered in 1497. There was no evidence that Cesare murdered hisbrother but many believed that he did. The image of Cesare and his father was hatefuland misleading from the public community. Cesare was portrayed as amonster of lust and cruelty that had gained an unnatural control over hisfather after having supposedly killed his brother.
Cesare was more ruthless man of action. Ambitious and arrogant, he was determined to establish himself as an Italian prince before his fatherdied and left him deprived of the political and financial support of thepapacy. He was very power-hungry and entirelyruthless. Murder, bribery and deceitwere all in the day’s work to him and his pleasures were women, hunting and fashionableclothes. He was considered the finestman in Italy, there were rumors of incest with his sister and he had syphilisfrom his early twenties. Cesare wasarrested once.
He then won a brief release from jail by agreeing to surrenderhis cities, and fled to Naples only to be arrested again.Yesa person can be both a villain and a hero for example Hitler. Hitler gotGermany out of debt. After WW1, Germany became extremely poor. Other countriesdemanded that Germany pay them huge amounts of money as punishment for startingthe war. All those countries demanding all that money from one country made itso that the people could no longer afford a easy life.
Many people couldn’teven afford a loaf of bread with their entire life savings. Hitler made changesto the government, and even replaced the currency. Germany became successfulagain. The Germanswere all looking for someone to blame for their misery. Hitler seized thisopportunity in the wrong way. He basically pointed at the Jews, and said,”There! They started the war! They’re the ones who caused your pain!” The wayhe took care of this “problem” is one that is horrible. He got the peopleto trust him by making their country great again, only to betray it in a singlemove.
Not even all the Nazis knew about what he was doing. Hewas being a hero trying to protect his people and get his country rich again anda villain because he was wrong about the Jewish people. Hitleralso was a villain because he killed over 2 million Jews. He even started cultural and socialimprovement. Throughout Hitler’scareer, his common theme was about cleaning up the country. He had seen whatthe Jews had created and wanted Germany to change.
