ON THE BORGIAS... IN HISTORY...
  • Was Prince Alfonso's illegitimate sister
  • Joffre and Sancia's wedding took place in the Vatican and was presided over by Juan Borgia and Cardinal Ascanio Sforza
  • Sancia appears in her 20's significantly older than her child husband Joffre who looks around 12 !
  • Sancia is called the Duchess of Squillace
  • The show took extreme liberties with Sancha of Aragon, as she was actually (Prince, then King) Alfonso II's daughter, not sister; Ferrante was thus her grandfather
  • The wedding was in Naples and took place on 11 May 1494, four days after the crowning of King Alfonso of Naples.
  • Sancia was born in 1478 and was 4 years older than Joffre (born in 1482) at the time of their marriage
  • Squillace was a fortified feudal city, commonly called a principality, not technically a duchy, so Joffre and Sancha were the Prince and Princess of Squillace
