Savonarola - Scale by deridolls Savonarola - Scale by deridolls
A commission from a fellow History-lover, here is little Girolamo Savonarola, a 15th century friar who fought against Church corruption and the Borgias and, for that, he was condemned to burn.
You can read more about him (and see some images) here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girolamo…

I don't know much about him but I assume he was a nasty piece of work.  Your doll however is very cute :)

Easy, girl! :D If it makes you feel better, it was a double commission, the other doll being Cesare Borgia. I'm imagining the trip inside the envelope to their new home must have been a chatty one!

He was also unforgiving, prejudiced, close-minded and had artists tortured :p You only rack up so much credit for going against the Borgias!

Well you guys were making him sound like a martyr, and I thought of him as an evil bastard, so I had to argue, but did feel obliged to concede that no matter how much fun to read about the Borgias weren't nice either ;)
