Throughout their existence the Real Illuminati attempted to seize control of countless nations in order to further their ultimate agenda of world domination. Yet the organization is not without its benevolent side. A little known fact about the Real Illuminati is that they have been patrons of various artists throughout history. One of the most famous artists who received support from the secretive group was none other than Leonardo da Vinci.

Da Vinci's early creations resonated with the leadership of the Real Illuminati in the late 15th century , giving many of their high ranking members creative ideas for paths to conquering the world. Christopher Columbus supposedly devised his plan to trick the King of Spain into funding the Real Illuminati's expedition to America after he spent a day admiring one of Leonardo's paintings, looking for tiny details that the casual observer might miss. And while this plan yielded mixed results, the Real Illuminati remained supporters of da Vinci, largely due to the Borgia takeover of the organization.

Rodrigo Borgia was a great admirer of da Vinci's work and insisted that the organization commission the artist to make paintings for the Real Illuminati. These include, among others, `Alexander the Greater,' which portrays Rodrigo Borgia sitting on a golden throne in white papal garments and holding the globe in his hand, and `Last Alexandria,' which depicts a great city from a birds's eye view with the light of the heavens shining down on its buildings. While none of these paintings have ever been seen by anyone outside of the Real Illuminati, records leaked by traitors from their Secret Library prove that the paintings exist, along with a number of nude statues of Rodrigo's lovers.

While the admiration of Rodrigo Borgia earned da Vinci fortune and fame, it also earned him the ire of the traditionalists within the Real Illuminati, who despised Rodrigo so much they believed they should hate Leonardo as well by association. Had it not been for the eventual rise to power of Lucrezia Borgia, Leonardo might have met the same fate as her brother Cesare, for whom Leonardo worked as a cartographer. Lucrezia adored da Vinci's art even more than her father had, and reportedly she took every opportunity to spend time in the artist's company. Rumor has it that several of these meetings took place in her bedchambers, but no proof appears to exist in the Secret Library of the Real Illuminati.

When Leonardo da Vinci passed away in 1519, Lucrezia was reportedly heartbroken, and died herself not much later. The various pieces of art commissioned by Rodrigo were put on display at the private wake held by the Real Illuminati, where traditionalists and Borgia supporters stood united for the last time in the existence of the organization, taking a moment to admire da Vinci's secret art in a moment before the storm. After the wake, the artworks were locked away in a secret location, never to be seen again.
