JOFRE BORGIA BIO
Characters - The Borgias Fan Wiki

Jofré Borja in Valencian dialect (Gioffre in Italian), (1482–1517) Prince of Squillace, was the youngest son of Pope Alexander VI, and Vannozzo dei Cattanei, sibling to Lucrezia, Cesare and Juan Borgia

page logoHe married Sancia (Sancha) of Aragon, daughter of Alfonso II of Naples, on 11 May 1494 obtaining as dowry the County of Alvito (1497). The marriage was an arranged one and Sancia slept with both of her husband’s older brothers, Cesare and Juan. Joffre was able to keep his lands briefly during the Franco-Spanish wars for the possession of the Kingdom of Naples, also defeating a rebellion in 1504, but lost some of them after Sancia's death. Generally quiet and passive, he was content to live the life of a country gentleman until his death.

He had a second marriage with Maria de Mila, a Spanish-born cousin of the Borgias. This marriage was happier and more successful than his previous one and they had four children. Their descendants survived as Princes of Squillance until the eighteenth century.

It is possible that Jofre and a member of the Orsini family were responsible for Juan Borgia's murder, but this appears highly unlikely, given that he was only fifteen at the time and was loyal to his family.
