Machiavelli

Biography

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) held office as a senior civil servant for fourteen years until the downfall of the Republic in 1512. No longer officially employed to impart advice, instead Machiavelli poured out his ideas and resentments in his writings as a gift for Prince Lorenzo de Medici. The Prince was the Italian's only major work.
