Behind the scenesEdit
- The historical King Ferrante of Naples was not killed by his son Alfonso, as depicted in the series. He died in 1494 (about 14 years after he is shown to die in the series), just as King Charles VIII of France was preparing to invade Italy for the conquest of Naples and starting the Italian Wars. In 2006, examination of his mummy determined the cause of his death to have been colorectal cancer.
