About the Author:
Niccolò Machiavelli was born in Florence in 1469. At the young age of twenty-nine, he entered government service in the city state of Florence as Second Chancellor, a senior post, with responsibilities for relations between Florence and its subject territories in Tuscany and more broadly for foreign affairs. Along with various treatises, plays, and poems, he wrote The Prince (1513), the Discourses (c.1514-1519), the Art of War (1521), and the Florentine Histories (1520-1525). He died in 1527.
