Research into the origins of the Borghese Family. Where did they come from ?
According to Wikipedia, Borghese is the surname of a family of Italian noble and papal background, originating as the Borghese or Borghesi in Siena, where they came to prominence in the 13th century holding offices under the commune. The head of the family, Marcantonio I, moved to Rome in the 16th century and there, following the election (1605) of his son Camillo Borghese as Pope Paul V who was an unabashed nepotist, they rose in power and wealth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Borghese
