I. From The Birth Of Machiavelli To The Death Of Lorenzo De' Medici. 1469-1492. 'Giova awertire come il Machiavelli crescesse in una società da due opposte correnti determinate; cristianeggiante l ' una, macera, ab0rrente d' ogni splendore di vita, povera, gittatasi da cieca sulle deboli e rare tracce della liberta già «¡comparsa; l' altra godente, splendida, oculata, ricca, ritrosa a credere, giudiziosa in destreggiare.... II fervoroso ed austero Savonarola determinava l ' una di queste correnti... l' altra faceva capo all' elegantissimo Lorenzo.'--Tommasini. Birth of Wïccolô Machiavelli at Florence.--His father, Bernardo 1469. di Niccolô, was a lawyer of some distinction: his mother, Ma 3-Bartolommea Nelli, is said to have been the authoress of some hymns to the Virgin, but there appears to be no authority for the tradition. His legitimacy has been called in question, but probably without just reason; see year 1507. Of his youth and education hardly anything is known: he was taught Latin, and may have learned Greek, though it has not been proved that he did: he probably received some instruction from Marcello Virgilio Adriani, who was however only five years his senior. The following works have been assigned, but without reason, to his earliest years:--Allocuzione fatta ad un magistrato nelF ingresso dell' ufficio: Op. v. 57.

Niccolo Machiavelli was an Italian politician, diplomat, founding father of political science, and author of the preeminent political treatise, The Prince. Born in Florence, Italy, Machiavelli held many government posts over his lifetime and often took leading roles in important diplomatic missions. During his time visiting other countries and nation states, Machiavelli was exposed to the politics of figures like Ceasare Borgia and King Louis XII, experiences which would inform his writings on state-building and politics. Machiavelli s political career came to an abrupt end when the Medici overthrew Florence, and he was held as a prisoner under the new regime. Tortured for a short time, he was released without admitting to any crime or treason. At this point, Machiavelli retired and turned to intellectual and philosophical pursuits, producing his two major works, The Prince and Discourses on the First Ten Books of Titus Livy. He died in 1527 at the age of 58.
