Pope Alexander VI is born Roderic Llançol i Borja in the town of Xàtiva in the Kingdom of Valencia. Alexander VI will become one of the most controversial popes of the Renaissance era.

The Italianized form of his surname, Borgia, will become a byword for the debased standards and debauchery of the Catholic Church during this time.
