A member of the House of Borgia, Rodrigo Luis de Borja y de Castre-Pinós was born in Gandía in 1524, the son of Juan de Borja y Enríquez de Luna, 3rd Duke of Gandía, and his second wife Francisca de Castro y de Pinós.[1] He was the half-brother on his father's side of Saint Francis Borgia, 4th Duke of Gandía and of Enrique de Borja y Aragón. He was the great-great-grandson of Pope Alexander VI.[2]

He inherited the barony of Navarrés by cessation of his father on June 8, 1530.[3] He joined the Order of Santiago in 1533.[4]

At a very young age, Pope Paul III created him a cardinal deacon in the consistory of December 22, 1536.[5] He received the deaconry of San Nicola in Carcere on January 15, 1537.[6] He died almost immediately after Francisco Juan Roca, dean of the collegiate church of Gandía arrived with the red hat.[7]

He died in the ducal palace of Gandía on August 6, 1537.[8]
