Beside Sharman’s Lorenzo Medici with a much longer hair and older looks (he is supposed to be over 40 in the final season), who is now the undisputed ruler of Florence, we will also see Sanditon’s Rose Williams who is joining the season in the role of Caterina Sforza Riario, a historical figure known as the Renaissance lioness whose defiance and ruthlessness have made
