Ursula Bonadeo is a minor character in The Borgias, a love interest of Cesare. She is first presented at Lucrezia's wedding and that's where she meets Cesare. She is a married woman, however, it appears that she's fairly happy by her husband's side. After his death she becomes a nun known as sister Martha.


Ursula had long, blond hair parted in the middle, blue eyes, pale complexion, and a slim figure. As an upper class lady, she often wears fancy dresses with rich embroidery. After becoming a nun, she had her hair cut short and puts on a habit.
